About this album

Boasting a uniformly excellent cast – David Daniels on peak form as Rinaldo, Cecilia Bartoli as an Almirena of vivid immediacy, a powerful Argante in Gerald Finley – and the AAM on bristling form, this disc is without doubt the new benchmark.
BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE

Christopher Hogwood directs the AAM and a line-up of the very best soloists in Handel’s bewitching tale of love, war and magic.
