Ruby Hughes - Handel's Last Prima Donna: Giulia Frasi in London (2018)
Classical, Vocal | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 258 MB
Label: Chandos | Tracks: 20 | Time: 78:08 min

Excelling in Renaissance and baroque repertoire, the young British soprano Ruby Hughes pays tribute to Handels last prima donna, the Italian soprano Giulia Frasi. For her debut recording on Chandos she has chosen a selection of celebrated arias composed for Frasi by Handel, in his late oratorios Susanna, Solomon, Theodora, and Jephtha, and other composers of the era, whose works are now much less familiar, offering several modern premieres. Performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, conducted by Laurence Cummings, and recorded in surroundsound, this programme is unique of its kind.

Inspired by the mythology and pastoral beauty of his Czech homeland, Smetana's six tone poems that form Má vlast (My Fatherland) is one of the best examples of Nationalism in music. The stirring second movement depicts the river Vltava as it flows through the countryside and into Prague. Struck with deafness in 1874, Smetana would never hear a performance of what would become his most popular work.

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 67:23 | 361 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: BIS | Catalog: BIS-SACD-1695

This exciting programme is presented by Emma Kirkby and London Baroque, household names in the sphere of 'early music', and certainly no new-comers to th works of Handel. Indeed, when they last joined forces in a Handel programme the website MusicWeb International called the performances ones that 'make one wish that all Handel music making could be of this order', while the reviewer in BBC Music Magazine wrote 'Ive seldom been as moved by a recording, both music and performance'.
