Semele in Paris

On YouTube you can find several adorable recordings of Paris Semele, look here:

"Ah me Too late I now repent"
"Myself I shall adore"
"No, no, I'll take no less"
"O Jove In pity teach me which to choose"
"O sleep, why dost thou leave me"

Gee.

Unfortuntely, You Tube removed the clips. I had the chance to listen to them only once: what a magnifiscent performance that must have been....thank you so much Charlotte for posting.

  4. Thank you Charlotte and thank you Sergei for your (not so) short review. Allow me to express a short comment about the orchestra : it was not Il Giardino Armonico, but La Scintilla from Zurich. Otherwise, I absolutely agree with you about Hilary Summers and Jael Azzaretti and I expect to see Cecilia in another Handel's opera.

  5. Oh, of course La Scintilla! I forgot to change it in the template. Thank you!
