Handel: Arias

CD

Overview

Internationally acclaimed tenor Rolando Villazón presents an all-new recording of Italian arias by Handel. All admirers of the tenor’s voice will be engaged by this program of performances, completely unlike any of Villazón’s previous recordings, offering listeners a thrilling and new way to hear Handel.

Conductor Paul McCreesh, a Gramophone Award winner for Handel, and the exciting Gabrieli Players join Villazón, giving the listener both an authentic period performance as well as a new twist on familiar Handel repertoire. To suit his voice, Villazón performs not only tenor arias, but also transposed mezzo-soprano arias—a practice familiar to Handel.
