Orkest: ORCHESTRA OF THE AGE OF ENLIGHTENMENT

Excelling in Renaissance and baroque repertoire, the young British soprano Ruby Hughes pays tribute to Handel’s last prima donna, the Italian soprano Giulia Frasi. For her debut recording on Chandos she has chosen a selection of celebrated arias composed for Frasi by Handel, in his late oratorios Susanna, Solomon, Theodora, and Jephtha, and other composers of the era, whose works are now much less familiar, offering several modern premieres. Performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, conducted by Laurence Cummings, and recorded in surroundsound, this programme is unique of its kind.

Smith, J C:

 Paradise Lost

"Ruby Hughes’s vocalism fits Frasi’s song perfectly…Cummings turns even the rawest musical material into gold…this disc is a treat, illuminating why Frasi and her music commanded a huge following."
