music to bridge Wed-Thur

clip from a channel called “Barock’n roll”, very appropriate! I have been quite curious for a while where this aria fits in, especially because E.Haïm seems to cut it in all her versions… here it is, along with the growling (in low notes) and finger pointing! Bonus: Mezzo in glasses and lots of female players in the orchestra.

Händel Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno; Disinganno’s aria (translation text also thanks to the poster).

Chi già fu del biondo crine
consigliero, al suol cadrà.

Soffra pur le sue ruine,
se sovente egli compose
con i gigli e con le rose
tanti inganni alla beltà

He who was once the counsellor of
blond tresses shall fall to the ground.

Let him indeed suffer ruin,
since so often he devised,
with lilies and roses,
so many deceits for beauty.
