Conductor Daniel Reuss' splendid new recording of Handel's Solomon expands the extraordinarily broad range of music, including works by Bach, Mozart, Berlioz, Elgar, Ligeti, Stefan Wolpe, and the Bang on a Can composers, in which he has shown his mastery. His 2006 recording of Martin's Le vin herbé was one of the highlights of the year. Handel scored the oratorio for unusually large choral and orchestral forces, and the sound of this performance, with the RIAS-Kammerchor and Akademie für Alte Musik, Berlin, is warmly humanistic, beautifully paced, and tonally sumptuous, and is sung and played with stylistic assurance and lively dramatic passion. The oratorio is in three acts, with the first focusing on Solomon's marriage, the second on the dispute of the two harlots each claiming the same child, and the third on the visit of the Queen of Sheba. The composer's tone for the most part is one of gentle benevolence, interrupted only by the conflict of the second act, but Handel is infinitely inventive in his ability to express happiness, so there is no lack of musical variety. Those moments are in fact among the work's most memorable, particularly the ravishing love scene in the first act, culminating in the sublime chorus, "May no rash intruder disturb their soft hours," and the First Harlot's paean to Solomon's wisdom, "Beneath the vine or fig-tree's shade." Alto Sarah Connolly is a lyrically serene and vocally sensuous Solomon. Sopranos Susan Gritton as his Queen and First Harlot, and Carolyn Sampson as the Queen of Sheba and Second Harlot sing with pure, soaring tone, beautiful coloratura, and vivid dramatic characterization. As Zadok, tenor Mark Padmore sounds a little thin, in an English-oratorio-singer way, but bass David Wilson-Johnson makes a solid and compelling Levite. Harmonia Mundi's clean sound has a fine balance of brightness and warmth, and an excellent sense of presence.
