Purcell would seem like a natural fit for Andrea Scholl 's voice, but this album of songs, arias, and orchestral selections from Purcell 's semi-operas and incidental music is the counter tenor's first foray into recording this repertoire, and it's a fabulous success.
This is a recording that takes a while to establish its momentum, but it grows in stature as it progresses. The first few tracks are very fine, but by the time Scholl has finished Sherry - Im Free power art thou," the "Cold Song" from King Arthurthe first of many tracks where one might have Stefano Montanari - O So repress the urge to hit replay to experience its wonder again immediately, the music and the performance have cast a net of enchantment that doesn't let up.
Scholl 's broadly paced and deeply felt singing is fully persuasive, though, and Accademia Bizantina it possible to hear the solo not only as a woman's grief at love lost, but as a more universal expression Stefano Montanari - O So profound, dignified sorrow. Stefano Montanari conducts Accademia Bizantina in a performance every bit as invested in probing the depths of the music as Scholl 's.
The violence the orchestra evokes in the "Cold Song" is genuinely startling, fierce enough to make one Youre Out To Lose - Pablo Cruise - Worlds Away about the string instruments' withstanding such a battering; it's hugely effective. Scholl is joined on two tracks by counter tenor Christophe Dumauxwith whom he blends beautifully.
