Description
(Winner of the CHOC de Classica Award; an Official Selection of France Musique; Recipient of the "ffff" Distinction from Télérama) Belgian-born conductor and countertenor René Jacobs is one of the leading lights in the universe of early music performance; his interpretation of G.F. Handel's first successful opera brings the visceral thrills that this drama of scandal and amorous intrigue in first-century Rome is meant to evoke. In addition, this is the sole recording containing the complete music for the third act, and it comes with a bonus DVD of production clips.

"[Jacobs's] recent recordings attest to his boldness of approach, consistency of vision and brilliance of effect. The 'Agrippina' surges with energy, with a stellar cast including the Bulgarian soprano Alexandrina Pendatchanska … in the title role."—NYTimes

"The performance is excellent: the recitatives and arias are deftly conducted, flowing seamlessly together. Four stars."—The Guardian
