Handel's "Rinaldo" - Seville

The English Concert performs Georg Frederic Handel's Rinaldo, featuring soloists Iestyn Davies, Jane Archibald, Sasha Cooke, Joelle Harvey, Jakub Jozef Orlinski, and Luca Pisaroni

Handel knew how to put on a show. With Rinaldo, the first Italian opera written for the London stage, he created a thrilling crowd-pleaser. Rinaldo dazzles with its expressive arias, like the plaintive “Lascia ch’io pianga,” one of the most popular soprano arias ever written. Rinaldo’s spectacular instrumental writing is unsurpassed, with rousing trumpets, drums, strings, and oboe in the martial aria “Or la tromba” and show-stopping harpsichord pyrotechnics—originally improvised by Handel—in the fiery aria “Vo’ far guerra.”
