L'Arpeggiata: Handel Goes Wild
Handel: Semele: Where’er you walk (3:37); Solomon: Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (4:09)
Nuria Rial, soprano; L’Arpeggiata / Christina Pluhar
With “Handel Goes Wild,” Christina Pluhar and her ensemble L’Arpeggiata once again embark on some musical time travel, this time in the company of soprano Nuria Rial, countertenor Valer Sabadus and jazz clarinettist Gianluigi Trovesi. The album features sumptuously reimagined versions of some of Handel’s most celebrated operatic arias and excerpts.
