Handel's 1738 opera Serse (Xerxes) baffled audiences at first hearing with its mixture of tragedy and comedy, but that same mixture has resulted in the opera's steadily rising status in performance today. If you're maxed out on athletic opera seria performances, check it out: it has elements of a put-on of that genre. The plot is kicked off by Serse, the king of ancient Persia, praising a shade tree in the famous aria "Ombra mai fu," whose tune is also known as Handel's Largo. The role of Serse is written for a male countertenor (originally the castrato Caffarelli), who has to keep a level of seriousness as his character becomes involved in increasingly improbably romantic triangles. The key to any spoof is a veneer of seriousness, and if the liquid tones of countertenor Franco Fagioli in "Ombra mai fu" were not enough, then the edgy sound of the historical-instrument group Il Pomo d'Oro under director Maxim Emelyanychev will snare you for the rest. This is a studio recording but is closely based on a 2018 production at the Barbican in London, and there are moments of stage business that don't come through fully in the recording medium. The cast, however, is uniformly strong, with American mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux in the male role of Serse's brother Arsamene, and Latvia's Inga Kalna as one of two sisters in love with Serse. The whole group makes the most of Handel's anonymous but trenchant libretto in what may well become a standard reading of this late Handel opera.

Album Description

Handel's 1738 opera Serse (Xerxes) baffled audiences at first hearing with its mixture of tragedy and comedy, but that same mixture has resulted in the opera's steadily rising status in performance today. If you're maxed out on athletic opera seria performances, check it out: it has elements of a put-on of that genre. The plot is kicked off by Serse, the king of ancient Persia, praising a shade tree in the famous aria "Ombra mai fu," whose tune is also known as Handel's Largo. The role of Serse is written for a male countertenor (originally the castrato Caffarelli), who has to keep a level of seriousness as his character becomes involved in increasingly improbably romantic triangles. The key to any spoof is a veneer of seriousness, and if the liquid tones of countertenor Franco Fagioli in "Ombra mai fu" were not enough, then the edgy sound of the historical-instrument group Il Pomo d'Oro under director Maxim Emelyanychev will snare you for the rest. This is a studio recording but is closely based on a 2018 production at the Barbican in London, and there are moments of stage business that don't come through fully in the recording medium. The cast, however, is uniformly strong, with American mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux in the male role of Serse's brother Arsamene, and Latvia's Inga Kalna as one of two sisters in love with Serse. The whole group makes the most of Handel's anonymous but trenchant libretto in what may well become a standard reading of this late Handel opera.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.

Women Composers: A Secret History

From Sappho of Mytilene to Kaija Saariaho, music history has been marked by female figures who “dared” to write music. Is creation a male privilege? Our sound museum does hold more well-known and recognised male than female composers. Yet their works are no less exciting and there is absolutely no reason for them to play second fiddle, or be ignored altogether. Below, you’ll find a defence and illustration of female composition works through eleven musical portraits.
