More praise for Handel Radamisto

More critical praise for Elizabeth:

HANDEL Radamisto, The English Concert, Harry Bicket, Barbican Hall, London

Elizabeth Watts outshone them both with her outstandingly communicative Tigrane, singing with bright conviction and conveying every emotional twist and turn with vivid clarity…showed how the repetitions in Handel’s arias can be made to feel dramatically essential.

Hugo Shirley, The Telegraph, 11 February, 2013

…the audience loved her for her gleaming singing as much as for her levity.

Erica Jeal, The Guardian, 11 February, 2013

With David Daniels, Luca Pisaroni and Elizabeth Watts in leading roles, it’s hard to imagine a better cast for Handel’s drama.

Rupert Christiansen,The Telegraph, 9 February, 2013

Critical acclaim for Elizabeth’s release of Bach Cantatas

“a performance which mixes sumptuousness and refinement with impeccable poise and style… Watts is as authoritative and compelling a Bach soprano as you will find anywhere today… A most rewarding and satisfying disc in which an excellent band of players under a superb director are crowned by a voice of real magic.”

Marc Rochester, International Record Review, February 2011

and for Artaxerxes too…

“The Soldier tir’d… is resplendently delivered by Elizabeth Watts.”

George Hall, BBC Music Magazine
