Description
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson heads a stellar cast in this acclaimed complete recording of Ariodante, called by Fanfare "a milestone of the Handel renaissance of the last decade." Lieberson died in the midst of a brilliant career, and this 1995 portrayal of the title character (a coloratura-rich trouser role she debuted at the Göttingen Handel Festival) is one of her greatest recorded legacies.

"It's a glorious performance.... McGegan inspires incisive, darkly dramatic orchestral playing ... [and] Hunt's burnished mezzo combines fire with a poignant intensity that breaks your heart."—BBC Music

"Ariodante's varied feelings of betrayal—disbelief, anger, despair—seem natural by-products of Lorraine Hunt's rich, subtle voice, which dwells in quiet turmoil, then lashes out in brilliant vengefulness."—Opera News

"Hunt's musical integrity and pristine tone float over the other contributions like a benediction."—San Francisco Examiner

"An energy and verve that never slips from the highest standard of style and refinement."—Classic CD
