ACCLAIM FOR THE ARADIA ENSEMBLE’S
NEW HANDEL RECORDINGS ON NAXOS

Toronto music magazine WholeNote recently featured Aradia Ensemble leader Kevin Mallon on the cover of its March issue.  Here’s what critics have been saying about the recent Handel performances on Naxos by Mallon and his group: 

G. F. HANDEL: Water Music, Music for the Royal Fireworks

Aradia Ensemble, Kevin Mallon

8.557764

GRAMOPHONE EDITOR’S CHOICE MARCH 2006 

"Joyful, witty performances."
 --James Inverne, Gramophone

"Mallon’s performance is exemplary . . . Brightness and subtlety co-exist with a charismatic swagger."
--David Vickers, Gramophone

"Mallon and his Toronto-based ensemble . . . combine a New World sort of jaunty ambling spirit with, when needed, a very convincing Handelian mixture of pomp, real dignity and depth. Mallon . . . seems to be a rising star in Naxos’ Handel firmament."
--Laurence Vittes, Audiophile Audition (www.audaud.com)

G. F. HANDEL: Rinaldo 

Marion Newman, Laura Whalen, Kimberly Barber, Jennifer Enns Modolo, Sean Watson, Barbara Hannigan; The Aradia Ensemble, Opera in Concert, Kevin Mallon

"It has plenty to recommend it . . . The cast is uniformly good."
--Robert Levine, ClassicsToday.com
