David Daniels stars in Handel's Radamisto

Speaking with Catherine Bott, countertenor David Daniels and scholar Jonathan Keats explore the rich musical characterisations in Handel's Radamisto, from bloodthirsty tyrant Tiridate, to the wonderfully moving presentation of love between husband and wife, Radamisto and Zenobia. Among other topics, Daniels and Keats also discuss the historical context and topicality of Radamisto's theme of dynastic intrigue, how Handel dealt with the prima-donnas of the 18th Century and the simple key to the beauty of Handel's writing that reaches 'right to the core of the soul'.
