About

Grammy Award-winning soprano Amanda Forsythe joins the acclaimed baroque orchestra Apollo's Fire and their founder/director Jeanette Sorrell for an impassioned recording of arias from Handel's seminal operas.

Love, angst and revenge are the timeless themes of Handel's operas, as brought to vivid life in this recording by the acclaimed baroque orchestra, Apollo's Fire. Soprano Amanda Forsythe, described as "simply dazzling" by The New York Times, joins conductor/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell to explore the gamut of emotions, from fiery coloratura arias to tragic laments. The recording includes rarely-heard arias and a few favourite chestnuts, drawn from a number of the composer's operas.
