Handel In Italy: Solo Cantatas – Emma Kirkby London Baroque SACD

Handel In Italy: Solo Cantatas - Emma Kirkby London Baroque SACD

Handel in Italy Kirby

The 2008 SACD (Hybrid) of Handel in Italy from BIS sung by Emma Kirby

The Arcadian influnced baroque painting by Claude Lorraine is the Landscape with Egeria and Numa which can be found in the Galleria Nazionale di Capodimonte in Naples. (Wikipedia list of works available in the Galleria Nazionale di Capodimonte)

I must confess that I'm no expert on Handel at all, however, as 2009 is a significant anniversary for the great composer (250 years since his death) this is a good year to find out more and I enjoy the Baroque period. I've always liked the singing of Emma Kirkby since I first heard her on various recordings from Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music in the early 1980s. There is an airiness and lightness of touch in her tone and timbre which fits the Baroque period very well.

There are 4 Cantatas in all on this SACD and just over 67 minutes of music. Emma Kirkby is accompanied by The London Baroque who have been playing Baroque chamber music for ovr 30 years. 

Handel In Italy - Solo Cantatas

Notte placida e cheta, HWV142 (1707)

Un’ alma innamorata, HWV173 (1707)

Figlio d’alte speranze, HWV113 (1706)

Agrippina condotta a morire, HWV110 (1709)

Concerto a Quattro in D major

The first two cantatas are about unhappy love whilst the last two are about the loss of authority and claims to power.

Handel the Man and his music

Keates is illuminating on Handel's early journey to Italy as a keyboard virtuoso and budding composer. In Venice, he was sought out by an admiring Scarlatti, while in Rome he fell under Corelli's benign influence; he was ravished by the pifferari music played in the street by Abruzzi shepherds, which he later reproduced in his Messiah. In Rome, he encountered the cantata, a form he quickly made his own. (Independent)
