Opera lirica di Georg Friedrich Händel, su libretto di Agostino Piovene, che ha come protagonista il sovrano turkmeno (1336–1405) fondatore della dinastia timuride.

"For the first release on the new Avie label, we are graced with a live recording of Trevor Pinnock’s version of Handel’s Tamerlano, recorded in June 2001… This is a fine recording of one of Handel’s finest operas… this is a great work, one that has not been recorded much, and which deserves to be discovered or rediscovered through this fine set." -MusicWeb International
"What a strange, wondrous work this is! Dealing almost exclusively with emotions--paternal, filial, and romantic love, sacrifice, jealousy, hatred, spite--there is very little "action" per se. But in Handel's Tamerlano we are smack in the middle of these people's hearts and it's more suspenseful and moving than operas with battles, great political themes, wind machines, and exotic dancers… Trevor Pinnock leads his English Concert expertly; his pacing of arias and recitatives is nothing if not both natural and dramatically apt. This is not perfect--it suffers some of the vicissitudes of live performances--but it presents this opera better than any competition on CD, and probably as well as we'll hear it any time soon." -Classics Today.
