Reviewer: Adrian Horsewood

In recent years Jacobs has gained notoriety in some quarters for his interventionist approach to scores (for which he remains steadfastly unapologetic, insisting that listeners have to be helped to imagine theatrical elements that cannot be reproduced on disc), and these tendencies come to the fore in his version of Handel's Rinaldo (* * * *). Thunder bursts out, birdsong fills the air, cadenzas grow increasingly outlandish; but it all adds to this tale of conjuring and deception and other‑worldly adventures. The singers are uniformly very good, with Vivica Genaux in the title role and Inga Kalna as the sorceress Armida putting in particularly good performances.
