Emma Bell - Handel - MusicWeek


10 September 2005
MusicWeek

Distinctive and individual, Emma Bell's soprano voice carries the blend of technical accomplishment and expressive richness required to exploit the musical and emotional variety of Handel's music. Her second Linn album sets sparks flying from the first bar, backed all the way by the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under the inspired Richard Egarr. This first-class hybrid SACD from Linn has the makings of an award winner, and is unlikely to pass by critics without attracting rave reviews.
