About

Philippe Jaroussky and Jean-Christophe Spinosi join forces together for a recital of opera arias by Handel and Vivaldi.

Georg Friedrich Handel is with no doubt the first great European composer in the history of music. Born in Halle, Germany, in 1685, he soon leaves for Italy, where he meets Domenico Scarlatti, Corelli and Pasquini. He takes English nationality in 1726 and composes many Italian operas for the British court (including Rinaldo, a true triumph in the composer's career). Handel composed over 40 operas, and his music is eminently vocal, with natural curves and refined, elegant eloquence. His sense of the melodic line was unequalled and thanks to the company of the great singers and castrati of the time.
