What do I love about Purcell’s music? Well, everything really. I love that he often breaks away from the established norm by writing wonderfully dissonant harmonies that creates a most evocative tension and expression within the music. I love that he seems to have a little twinkle in his eye; his music has passion, energy, humor, tragedy, exaltation, and so much more.
In this Fantasy from his superb opera, you can indulge your audiences to the Overture, Arias, Triumphing Dance, Chorus’s, Recits, the famous Lament, Sailor’s Dance, Echo Dance of the Furies, Witches’ Dance, and more. What a great piece of music. 17 mins. M
