Avison/Scarlatti (After D. Scarlatti) Concerto Grosso No. 3 in D minor

Handel Cantata Il delirio amoroso HWV 99

Haydn Symphony No. 73 La Chasse in D major arr. Salomon

Haydn Cantata for Soprano Arianna a Naxos Hob XXVIb:2

Award-winning Handel specialist Stefanie True, equally at ease on both opera and concert stages, dazzles audiences with her clear and stunning voice. Some of her recent engagements include Poppea in Handel’s Agrippina at The Grange Opera, solo roles at the Internationale Händel-Festspiele Göttingen, and the title role in Handel’s Theodora with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra.

Avison’s Concerto Grosso No. 3 in D minor paves the way for the dramatic cantatas that follow. Handel’s cantata Il delirio amoroso (The Delirium of Love) is a spectacular work telling of the tragic and unrequited love of Chloris for Thyrsis. Haydn’s equally moving cantata, Arianna a Naxos, reveals his mastery of writing for the human voice in a work that alternates between hope and profound despair.

Haydn’s Symphony No. 73, placed between these works, shines in a rare chamber version by Salomon. It is the second gem from a rarely performed eighteenth century set brought to light by AHE.
