LORRAINE HUNT LIEBERSON: A TRIBUTE
George Frideric Handel
Lorraine Hunt Lieberson, Freiburger Barockorchester and Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra
This set is a tribute to the supreme artistry of mezzo-soprano Lorraine Hunt Lieberson (1954-2006). It gathers together some of the finest recordings of arias and duets made during her acclaimed association with Harmonia Mundi. Highlights include selections from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and Handel’s Messiah. Hunt Lieberson is accompanied by Nicholas McGegan, leading the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and the Freiburger Barockorchester.
