About

Acclaimed mezzo-soprano Mary-Ellen Nesi presents thirteen arias - most of them recorded here for the first time - inspired by ten Greek female archetypes. George Petrou and the brilliant Armonia Atenea add fire to this exciting collection of 18th-century masterpieces.

MDG listeners will be familiar with Mary-Ellen Nesi from several outstanding Handel recordings. In her most recent recital the acclaimed mezzo-soprano turns to dramatic roles from Baroque and classical operas.

“In the castrato role of Oreste, Canadian-born mezzo Mary Ellen Nesi is a real find. The voice is expressive and handsome, and she has no trouble with the rapid passagework or with Handel’s smoother lines that require a true legato. She is a singer to keep an eye on: even in our chock-full-of-good-mezzos time, she’s worth hearing...” - Classics Today.com
