CONCERT PREP jAyqueSi! Suzie Leblanc ATMA Classiques ACD22244 Handel: Love Duets Suzie LeBlanc; Daniel Taylor Arion; Steven Stubbs ATMA Classiques ACD22260 These two fine new discs from the ·enterprising Montreal-based ATMA label feature Canadian soprano Suzie LeBlanc singing music from the baroque. jAy que sf! is a lovely collection of secular sungs from seventeenth century Spain. Drawing on tradi- · tional dance rhythms and folk melodies, they cover a broad range of extravagant emotions. LeBlanc is enchanting here. Wjth her expres­ .sive colouring and ornamentation, she is as persuasive in this repertoire as the great Spanish soprano Montserrat Figueras. Nuanced and idiomatic, she conveys the cynical disillusionment of Jose Marin's rhapsodic No piense Menguilla ya ("Do not think, Menguilla, that I die for your eyes; I have been a fool until now, and I shall be one no longer") and poignant despair of ' Juan Hidalgo's mesmerizing Esperar ("To hope, to feel, to die, to adore ... "). ·The musicians of Les Voix Humainys provide vivid support, with especially effective contribuc tions from the guitar of Stephen Stubbs and Spanish harp of Maxine Eilander. Along with instrumental Spanish baroque dances, they include a contemporary dance from Cuba, which shows how these distinctive rhythms have endured and migrated. In Handel: Love Duets Canadian countertenor Daniel Taylor joins LeBlanc in a well -chosen programme of solo arias and duets from Handel operas. The solos include an exquisite Cara sposa from Taylor, and a thrilling Da tempeste from NAXOS Classical, Nostalgia, Jazz Legends, Educational ... .•. great selection at outstanding prices m. ,\'#~ft.."\ ().8,.'..t"~;;?j. ~r:n tH.%~P l!f,K,~1W4 w~ ~~ ..
