  • Handel "Tamerlano" Xavier Sabata

“His exploration of ‘Bad Guys’ steers towards arias seldom heard out of context…Sabata offers the sweetest singing he has yet produced on disc.” Gramophone

“Sabata has a warm, mellifluous voice, which tends to underplay the villainous tendencies of his ‘bad guys’…From a purely musical standpoint Sabata’s recital is rewarding. His technique and intonation are flawless. His ornaments are tastefully discreet and he seems to effortlessly surmount Handel’s exacting coloratura.”
BBC Music Magazine

« The sensational Catalan countertenor Xavier Sabata examines the nature of evil as portrayed by Handel in his operas. Remarkably sung, this is also a masterclass in operatic psychology that painstakingly analyses how bitter emotional experience can make monsters of ordinary people. It’s one of the finest and most intelligent recital discs of recent years. » The Gardian
