Dunedin Consort - Handel: Samson - Gramophone (DV)

It is unprecedented for an unabridged Samson to nail its enigmatic challenges. Butt captures the manifold musical details, incremental theatrical tensions, literary subtleties and emotional trajectory of Handel’s long, ambitious and complex oratorio. The responsive orchestra and singers of the Dunedin Consort (whether heard in small or large choir configurations) perform with marvellous quality and conviction.
