La Vendetta

Hate and revenge in Handel and Porpora


07.08

Mezzo-soprano Giuseppina Bridelli and Le Concert de l’Hostel Dieu introduce us to the most brilliant rage arias of George Frideric Handel and Nicola Porpora. Handel’s Rinaldo 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.
