Handel's Bestiary: In Search of Animals in Handel's Operas
Price: £16.99Add to basket
A fascinating and deeply enjoyable foray into folklore, medieval bestiaries and Handel’s arias from the author of the enormously popular Commissario Brunetti detective novels. Twelve essays trace the evolution of mankind’s knowledge of the animals Handel references in his arias. Leon’s first work of non-fiction is a feast for the senses; beautifully written, sumptuously illustrated by Michael Sowa and accompanied by a CD of arias recorded by Il Complesso Barocco. An ideal gift.
