This album isn't just for fans of the counter-tenor's voice - Franco Fagiolo being one of the stars in the market - but also for lovers of the airs from Handel’s operas, and any serious baroque orchestra enthusiast, the orchestra here being Il Pomo d'Oro. When you unite all these elements together in a recording, the result is spectacular. This record includes the thrills of big hits like "Ombra mai fu" from Serse or "Cara sposa" from Rinaldo, as well as a number of no-less-interesting rarities, which have the advantage of shining a light on the lesser played works of the caro Sassone. After all, Ariodante, Partenope, Imeneo and Oreste (the album covers the composer's entire period of lyrical creativity) all have some great moments, and completely original airs, often loaded with the instrumental surprises that Handel arranged so well. And so, fans, if all three of the big elements are there - or if you are just curious to hear a very well made record - get stuck in! © SM/Qobuz

What a story! Angela. The woman, the career, the discs.

PALERMO, October 2017. – Charming, funny, mischievous, open, this is the impression that Angela Gheorghiu gave us when we at Qobuz met her recently for the release of her latest album. You have to be wary of reputations, and especially of the one that paints Gheorghiu only as a capricious shrew. More than that, she’s a woman who reflects upon the image she gives off… and who wants to do her best. She struggles against what Philippe Beaussant called “Malscène” (junk scene) in an essay published in 2005 —as we say junk food in the world of cuisine. In tune with the academician and musicologist deceased in 2016, Angela Gheorghiu fights a desperate battle against directors who, according to her, destroy the masterpieces of lyrical art by denaturing them instead of serving them.

Jonas Kaufmann in 10 Key Albums

With his flattering physique reminiscent of a handsome romantic, German Jonas Kaufmann has successfully modernised the image of opera tenors, long considered as unrepentant tumblers… Beyond his powerful and versatile voice, Jonas Kaufmann possesses an immense repertoire in several languages, masters all styles of opera, from Wagner to Verdi or Puccini, and sings the lied or the French opera to perfection. A great admirer of Fritz Wunderlich, he started his career “the old fashioned way”, in a company touring around small German theatres before taking off on his own towards a prodigious career. After a chaotic year in 2017 due to a ruptured blood vessel on his vocal chords, Jonas Kaufmann seems to have fully recovered and is working on countless new projects. Qobuz looks back on his career, highlighting 10 albums.

The rivals: Handel and Porpora in London

In this new and atmospheric piece, he evokes the ferocious rivalry which set Porpora against Handel in London...
