Julia Lezhneva - Handel: "Lascia la spina cogli la rosa"
Julia Lezhneva: Handel conducted by Giovanni Antonini with Il Gardino Armonico - http://po.st/LezhnevaHandel Lezhneva has been praised for her “unforgettable spiritual expression” and “perfect artistry” in Handel’s music, whether in “rapidfire coloratura passages” or the “gentle radiance that casts a tangible spell in slow music” (The Guardian)
The new album encompasses the best of Handel’s operatic and religious works from his years in Florence and Rome: the operas Rodrigo and Agrippina and the oratorios Il Trionfo and La Resurrezione as well as the complete Salve Regina and soprano solo from Dixit Dominus. Best known is the radiant “Lascia la spina” from Il Trionfo and its later incarnation as “Lascia ch'io pianga” from the opera Rinaldo.
