Paul McCreesh – CONDUCTOR

 

Purcell's semi-opera The Fairy Queen - written just three years before his untimely death in 1695 - is one of the composer's most glorious scores. Brimming with invention, in lively dances and songs ranging from the sublime to ridiculous, the bittersweet and erotic undertones of Shakespeare’s comedy have rarely been as beautifully captured as they are here. Conductor Paul McCreesh leads the acclaimed Gabrieli Consort & Players and an all-star cast in a joyous exploration of fairytale, magic and enchantment.
