Grammy Award-winning soprano Amanda Forsythe joins the acclaimed baroque orchestra Apollo's Fire and their founder/director Jeanette Sorrell for an impassioned recording of arias from Handel's seminal operas.

Love, angst and revenge are the timeless themes of Handel's operas, as brought to vivid life in this recording by the acclaimed baroque orchestra, Apollo's Fire. Soprano Amanda Forsythe, described as "simply dazzling" by The New York Times, joins conductor/harpsichordist Jeannette Sorrell to explore the gamut of emotions, from fiery coloratura arias to tragic laments. The recording includes rarely-heard arias and a few favorite chestnuts, drawn from eight of the composer's operas.

BBC Music Magazine

December 2015

****

“Forsythe shows here why she deserves top rank. Her agility, her invention and her voice - a straight core sound wrapped in luminous timbres - are remarkable…particularly in allegro moods, Forsythe sets arias on fire; her handling of war-horses like 'Da tempeste' (Giulio Cesare) will amaze even the jaded connoisseur”

Gramophone Magazine

November 2015

“Amanda Forsythe's intelligent and characterful singing means there's no risk of these being merely yet another slog through audition warhorses…Sorrell's strategy to interleave four dances between clusters of arias is neatly effective”
