Un’ Alma Innamorata
Handel’s Italian cantatas are among the most beautiful compositions he left to posterity. The interpretation by the Finnish Baroque Orchestra and soprano Carolyn Sampson promises pulsating life as if under the southern sun – even in January!
Carolyn Sampson, one of Britain’s leading sopranos specialising in Baroque and Classical music, has teamed up with the outstanding Scandinavian ensemble for this programme. Handel’s works, written around 1707 in Florence or Rome, alternate with pieces by two members of the Scarlatti family.
