British soprano Carolyn Sampson has long been known as a fine Handel specialist, and anticipation has awaited her recordings of the composer's early Italian cantatas, written in Rome at the end of the 1700s. It's everything that could be desired, and then some. The cantatas had some connection with a short-lived ban on opera in the Papal States, and plenty of muscular singers, female and male, have recorded them as little operatic scenes. Yet that is not quite what they are: they were written for aristocratic homes, not opera houses, and they were chamber music, not opera. Several have a pastoral flavor, with arias that hit Sampson's creamy sweet spot. Sample "Pien di nuovo e bel diletto," from the fairly rare Tra le fiamme, HWV 170, for a taste. Sampson is ideally accompanied in this regard by Robert King and the King's Consort, playing a superb small consort of historical instruments or copies of them; the group is quiet but not at all inexpressive, and the entire performance has the feeling of something Handel himself might have heard. Of course, when things get more athletic and operatic in the final Agrippina condotta a morire, HWV 110, Sampson and King shift into a higher gear, and it's easy to imagine as a concert finale in a Roman house. The Vivat label's sound from the Alpheton studio in New Maltings is ideal, and the whole package is highly recommended, even for those who feel their collections already have a strong complement of Sampson.

Album Description

British soprano Carolyn Sampson has long been known as a fine Handel specialist, and anticipation has awaited her recordings of the composer's early Italian cantatas, written in Rome at the end of the 1700s.

The Vivat label's sound from the Alpheton studio in New Maltings is ideal, and the whole package is highly recommended, even for those who feel their collections already have a strong complement of Sampson.

Danny Elfman in Ten Albums

From fairy tales to wacky comedies, from the most extraordinary orchestral works to understated pieces, for almost forty years now Danny Elfman has been crafting his unique sound and injecting it into Hollywood productions by the likes of Tim Burton or Gus Van Sant. We look back over ten albums from his career, exploring both his essential works and less well-known compositions.

Martha Argerich: The Untameable Pianist

For over 60 years the Argentinian pianist Martha Argerich has amazed audiences all over the world with her wild, impulsive playing and her constant risk-taking, overcoming every technical difficulty by turning each of her performances into a fascinating journey.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
