For the sake of both vocal and family well-being, Anne Sofie von Otter has always followed the wise course of self-rationing in opera. This disc, an entirely personal selection of arias from the Viennese Classical period, means all the more to her including, as it does, arias sung by dramatic and passionate women 'most of whom', she admits in the accompanying notes, 'I have never performed on stage and, alas, probably never will'.

With opera arias of Hasse, he has become the shooting star amongst countertenors; Valer Sabadus appeared in Mozart roles for the Styriarte in December 2013.
The Salzburg master wrote for some of the greatest castrati of his time: Rauzzini, Consoli, Bedini. The young interpreter must therefore sing up into the heights of the soprano range; he succeeds in this wonderfully, as he also does in the exploration of profound feelings. His mentor Michael Hofstetter is on the podium, adding the orchestra‘s pulsing Mozartian vitality to this flawlessly beautiful singing.

Dorothea Craxton - Handel: Nine German Arias, Gloria (2011)  Music

Genre: Classical, Vocal | Label: Naxos | Catalog: 8.572587

This album of Handel vocal selections should delight the listener with its clear, bell-like soprano and its period orchestra, its Handelian melismas and reverential songs to God. Soprano Dorothea Craxton sings with such a beautiful, creamy sound and smooth technique that one does not hear her breaths. However, this album disappoints for the sole reason that the recording quality is off-balance, often relegating Craxton to sound like a member of the ensemble as opposed to soloist (or being overpowered by one of the ensemble).

According to Christopher Hogwood, in his marvelous biography of Handel, "In the winter of that year [1750], Handel received what was for him an unusual commission. Although closely associated with the London theatre, he wrote very little incidental music for plays. A request from John Rich to provide airs and dances for Smollett's 'Alceste' was undertaken, according to Hawkins, in repayment of a debt to Rich."

Ave Sol is acknowledged as one of the most versatile and innovative choirs in the world. For over 45 years this ensemble has championed contemporary composers and performed the great choral repertoire to huge acclaim. The members come from all walks of life and are united by their intense love of music and the sheer joy of singing together. This unique album features many of the greatest opera arias and duets, but these immortal melodies have been given a unique twist in stunning new choral arrangements. For the first time these world famous pieces are performed not by great sopranos and tenors of our day, but by the dedicated members of the chorus; performers who ordinarily would never get to display their special affinity with this music.
