Description
With some of 17th-century British composer's Henry Purcell's finest melodic inspirations, this disc offers solemn overtures, cheerful and sad songs, and delightful dances. Its many gems include the erotic musical diversion in Amphitryon (a pastoral dialogue betwixt Thyrsis and Iris in which the amorous shepherd begs for and is granted his heart's desire); a complete scene of vocal solos and choruses from Circe; Sir Barnaby Whigg's "Blow, Boreas, blow"—a demanding, dramatic arioso depicting storm turbulence—and the series of dances in The Gordian Knot Unty'd, including a Rondeau, Minuett, and final Chacone.

"[Kevin] Mallon offers lively performances of a good cross-section of Purcell's theatre music. The instrumental performances are especially enjoyable and bring the theatrical environment to life."—Musicweb International

"Mallon's latest Naxos series sets high artistic values … powered by the music-making's unbridled joyfulness and a delicious feel for Baroque excess."—Classic FM
