Exploration of Love’s Vicissitudes in Worldly Handel Cantatas
Soprano Francesca Aspromonte and violinist Boris Begelman present an all-Handel programme exploring the vicissitudes of love, together with Arsenale Sonoro. On Un’alma innamorata, Aspromonte urges us to take ownership of our amorous infatuations, rather than blaming it on Cupid’s arrows. The programme consists of several worldly cantatas with violino concertante – including the famous Mi palpita il cor and a world premiere recording of S’un dì m’appaga la mia crudele – interspersed with instrumental sonatas. The overall chamber-musical approach of Un’alma innamorata increases the emotional impact of the tragic heroines depicted by Aspromonte.
Francesca Aspromonte presents her third Pentatone album, after having released Prologue (2018) and Maria & Maddalena(2021). Boris Begelman featured on the latter album, whereas Arsenale Sonoro makes its Pentatone debut.
