    spamming my own comment box: SUPERB music and singing!! wau. just done part one, time for breakfast.. then will continue, superbe. and live concert too! did i mention i like ms. mingardo’s voice? orchestra sound is great too! think i’ve seen the conductor before in other händel…
    ps- hah, he (Händel) reused the final duet music from Arianna in Creta here (or the other way around).. you can spot it right near the beginning

    Yes, the Kraków one (one of the hottest old music festivals to be heard!) – thank you for the link, marvelous. (also, Lezhneva! But first and foremost, Mingardo. Guuuuuh.)

      ok, i back for 3rd round.. i don’t know the rest of the singers, somehow wasn’t quite warm to both sopranos (though 1 sounds like a mezzo no?) . first note of 1st soprano was like an eagle crash landing… and the 2nd voice, she reminds me a lot of the voice from a random unlabeled recording i found on my harddrive of Händel’s Oreste.. let me google..

      wow, disinganno just entered.. what a sound..

      * nope, only recording seems to be Mary-Ellen Nesi..
      * reconfirming how amazing the orchestra sounds!!
      * this totally brings back of memory of that recital in Helsinki..
      * yet more re-use music: aria around min 50, think from agrippina

      • Anik LaChev says:

        Invernizzi is a big established name in the Early Music scene (particularly among the touring Italian collaborations), and Lezhneva is one of the hot young up-and-comers (she’s on the Ottone in villa for the Naive Vivaldi edition), although since her debut solo album (she got taken on by DG; I think – one of the major ones who are giving her serious PR), she’s kind of past that state already. Still in her twenties, though.
        Disinganno is a contralto favorite of mine – all my favorites have done it: Mijanovic (who did this on stage, too, for Zurich), Galou, Mingardo… *sigh*

          ah thanks for the tutorial Anik. i remember the Zürich one with Genaux as well where they were running between bars and columns (right?) . that was back when i first discovered everything and was chasing down all bootleg (shhh) versions of genaux’ singing (and got nicely introduced to Mijanovic!) i’ll have to listen more to Invernizzi.. coz somehow i’m not warm to this performance.. but the soprano bothers me the most.. i much prefer the soprano in red in beaunne (2n?) where there were also basso and pokupic :-).

          • Anik LaChev says:

            and the beaune one is up in full video on YT, too. 🙂

            (as for the bootlegs, we might just qualify for “White Shirts of the Caribbean” (or the Bering Strait?), with Mingardo (and others) for rum – everytime a favorite is gone from YT, I ask “But why is the rum gone?”)
