Overview

Kathleen Battle's honeyed, golden soprano and the sparkling silver of Wynton Marsalis's trumpet are blended together in this splendid program of baroque arias -- an inspired act of musical alchemy. The virtuosity these artists display is absolutely breathtaking, with voice and instrument intertwined as they joyously bound into the stratosphere. Battle rattles off her runs and roulades just easily and with as much relish as Marsalis does. But equally awe-inspiring are the pieces in which exuberant exultation gives way to a quieter sort of rapture. With Battle and Marsalis flying so high, and with crisp accompaniment from the Orchestra of St. Luke's, there's never been a better reason to go for baroque!
