Description du produit

Renowned for their Handel interpretations, Harry Christophers and his award-winning choir, The Sixteen, add to their glittering catalogue of Handel discs with this new recording of Saul. In his biblical oratorio, Saul, Handel wrote an epic work of great and noble drama and of thrilling musical inventiveness. Saul represents Handels first proper foray into oratorio and it is a masterpiece full of great and magical moments. It is bursting with exceptional music, extraordinary orchestration (replete with trombones, deep-sounding drum and perky carillon), extended choruses both profound and ebullient, symphonies, concerto movements for organ, recitatives which explore the varying moods of the characters, and the most stunning arias. In Saul Handel gifted soloists with roles of vivid characterisation and the artists on this disc are some of the finest Handelian interpreters of today including Christopher Purves a baritone whose talent for dramatic realisation is matched by superb musical craftsmanship - and Sarah Connolly - whose intensely radiant performance of David on this CD confirms her status as one of our most sought-after Handel performers. Both Christopher and Sarah sang with The Sixteen at the start of their careers, and Sarah released her first solo album Heroes and Heroines on CORO, and so it is with great pride that we welcome them back for this recording. Robert Murray, Elizabeth Atherton and Joélle Harvey along with Sixteen regulars, Mark Dobell, Jeremy Budd and Stuart Young, complete the stellar line-up of soloists on this new recording.


Sarah Connollys David is in a class of its own. Her wonderfully refined and sensitive singing, radiated with intense musicality and intelligence, made the aria O Lord whose mercies numberless a profoundly moving meditation, which must stand as one of Handels most ardent professions of Christian faith. --Rupert Christiansen, Daily Telegraph (on The Sixteens performance of Saul at The Barbican)

Sarah Connolly's O Lord whose mercies numberless is as quietly rapturous as anyone other than the enraged Saul could desire . The Sixteen's first-class account is magnificent in every way that matters most. RECORDING OF THE MONTH GRAMOPHONE CHOICE --Gramophone, Oct'12

Handel's dramatic portrait of Saul his jealousy of Goliath's slayer, David, proves self-destructive is one of Shakespearian stature, despite a titter-provoking libretto by Charles Jennens (of Messiah fame). Christopher Purves gives vent to Saul's paranoia with trenchant diction and fulminating delivery of Handel's angry coloratura. Sarah Connolly's David is the other star, unusually but apparently authentically cast in a role once thought to have been written for a countertenor. If the rival sisters Michal (Joelle Harvey) and Merab (Elizabeth Atherton) sound samey and thin-toned, the splendid chorus makes ample amends. --Sunday Times,16/09/12

Christopher Purves and Sarah Connolly all but steal the show. Performance **** Recording ***** --BBC Music Magazine, Christmas'12

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A full-throated, dramatic version of a great Handel work. 8 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: CD Achat vérifié
I was a little skeptical of buying the "Sixteen" version of an oratorio, because small choirs have been known to turn Handel's great dramas into fluty, hooty, bloodless shadows of what they deserve. But I was very pleasantly surprised by this recording. The choir sounds robust and "big" whenever it needs to, the soloist work is superb, and the ear-catchingest part of all is the wonderful orchestral colors Handel (and the recording) achieves with harp, "bells," and trombones in addition to the usual baroque orchestra. Beautifully performed and excellently engineered.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent music 14 septembre 2003

Saul is one of those lesser known works by Handel. I certainly prefer Solomon, the Messiah or Israel in Egypt. Nevertheless, there is plenty of glorious music in Saul. The Monteverdi sings with their customary virtuosity. Casting of solo parts is superb. A bit on the pricey side but this is an investment that will yield rich dividends over a long period of time. Instead of listening to the Messiah all the time, or Solomon or Jephtha, why not be more daring and explore this lesser known work by Handel?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another feast for Handelians 25 décembre 2003
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
Here's another astonishing piece for all Handelians. Many of Handel's great pieces have sadly been neglected - just like many of Richard Strauss' operas which have only recently received attention from people like Botstein, Korsten and Sinopoli (deceased). Thankfully, Gardiner and his team took the trouble to record this astonishing masterpiece. I simply love this piece - Saul!! The Monteverdi choir is the best in the world - listen to their stunning virtuosity here. Thank you, Gardiner!!
