La vendetta

Rage and revenge in works by Handel and Porpora


01.08

Mezzo-soprano Giuseppina Bridelli and Le Concert de l’Hostel Dieu introduce us to the most brilliant rage arias of George Fridric Handel and Nicola Porpora. Handel’sRinaldo swears to wreak vengeance through the dramatic invocation of whirlwinds, while the hero of Porpora’s Semiramide explodes in fury with the headlong ‘In braccio a mille furie’.

“Bridelli’s strong mezzo voice provides fine advocacy for Porpora’s long lyrical lines.”
