  • May 14, 2011 Handel 45 Arias, Vol. 2 (International)

    If one allows that some of the arias in this anthology are only proper for soprano or tenor, not both, there remain some good things to say about it. First, the selection consists of basic arias with which no performer should be unfamiliar. The editing, too, is modest enough, with...

    editorial dynamics clearly set off in parentheses. In addition, the piano reductions of the orchestral accompaniments are not difficult and provide useful study material for student accompanists. While it is true that some of the continuo realizations will seem conservative by present-day standards, they work well enough on the piano, are of an appropriate level of complexity for student accompanists, and could be easily dressed up by the pianist if necessary.

    As with the other albums in this series they stupidly mix soprano and tenor arias in the same album. The ommission of the recitative preceding "Sound an Alarm" is a grevious editing error. I'm sending it back.

  • December 11, 2008 what a mish mash

    The same problems as volume 1. Oratorio & opera arias mixed up in one volume also soprano & tenor arias. There should be four volumes an opera and an oratorio album for tenor and the same for soprano. I think that some of the keys have been changed from the original. The...

    omission of the recitative preceding "Sound an Alarm" is a grevious editorial error.

    Excellent but I think that the page is small. I prefer the book with large pages.
