"Il Caro Sassone": Handel in Italy. Arias & cantatas

Lucy Crowe, soprano, The English Concert, Harry Bicket
    • Apple Music

    Soprano Lucy Crowe joins The English Concert led by Harry Bicket in this dazzling programme of Handel arias and cantatas dating from his sojourn in Italy, where he was affectionately dubbed “the dear Saxon”.
    “Her dramatic and emotional powers ... are remarkable. In comedy or tragedy she reaches the heart of the music.” – The Times of London (UK)
    “One of the most accomplished Handel singers around, the voice a thing of great beauty, freshness and purity, the technique so secure that the most difficult coloratura gymnastics were like child’s play.” – The Chicago Tribune (concert review)
