5.0 out of 5 stars Intensely Pleasurable Listening - Gramophone Award April 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
George Frideric Handel (1685 - 1759): Susanna. Oratorio. First performed 1749. Complete version including all the music that Handel later deleted. Performed by Lorraine Hunt and Jill Feldman, soprano, Drew Minter, countertenor, Jeffrey Thomas, tenor, David Thomas and William Parker, bass; the U.C. Berkely Chamber Choir; the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, San Francisco, conducted by Nicholas McGegan.
Recorded live in September, 1989, at the Hertz Hall at the University of California.
Harmonia Mundi 907030.32 (boxed set of 3 CDs). Total time: 2 h 58'22".

What a pity that Harmonia Mundi has deleted this first full recording of Handel's late oratorio "Susanna" from its catalogue. If, like me, you can manage to get hold of a second-hand copy, then do so by all means, for this Gramophone Award-winning set of discs is good for many hours of intensely pleasurable listening and provides insights into Handel's later style that are denied those who limit themselves to "Messiah" and "Israel in Egypt" or to his more dynamic, perhaps even blustery early works and operas. "Susanna", the story taken from a piece of Jewish writing from the 2nd century B. C. (and usually included in the "Apocrypha"), is a comparatively small-scale work with a lot of intimate writing: Lorraine Hunt, soprano, as Susanna, and Drew Minter, countertenor, as her husband Joacim, have wreaths of delightful airs in which they praise either each other or the delights of love and virtue.
