Info for Handel's Tea Time



Auf ihrem neuen Album präsentiert die herausragende Barocksopranistin zusammen mit dem Schweizer Alte Musik-Ensemble »Die Freitagsakademie« Werke für Sopran und Kammermusik von Georg Friedrich Händel. »Händel’s Tea Time« vereint die beiden Kantaten »Venus & Adonis« und »Mi palpita il cor« mit Instrumentalwerken sowie Ausschnitten aus den »24 English Songs« sowie den »9 Deutschen Arien«. Die Kantaten bilden prächtige Beispiele für Händels musikalische, die menschliche Gesangsstimme feiernde Ausdruckskunst. Bei der Kantate »Venus & Adonis« HWV 85 handelt es sich wahrscheinlich um Händels erste Komposition in englischer Sprache. Die Kantate »Mi palpita il cor« HWV 132b entstand dagegen zwar in Italien, doch Händel überarbeitete sie in seiner Londoner Zeit. Auch in der Vokalmusik fand Händel Zeit für intimere Gattungen und Ausdrucksformen jenseits der grandiosen Arien und Chöre. So entstanden über die Jahre die »24 English Songs« sowie »9 Deutschen Arien«. Abgerundet wird das Programm von einem »Concerto a quattro« sowie einer Trio-Sonate für Oboe und Streicher. Zudem lassen die »Air und Five Variations« für Cembalo erahnen, was für ein unglaublicher Tastenvirtuose Händel gewesen sein muss. Als Hommage an Henry Purcell, der vor Händel aus London eine Opernmetropole gemacht hatte, erklingt zum Schluss des Albums eine Arie aus dessen Semi-Oper »The Fairy Queen«.

Furthermore, she gives concerts with Early Music Vancouver, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra and Ensemble at the Musikfest Bremen, with the Bachakademie Stuttart at the Thüringer Bachwochen and the Bachfest Leipzig. Together with the Hathor Consort, she appears at the Tage Alter Musik in Herne and in Regensburg, and together with the Lautten Compagney Berlin, she will perform at the Musikverein Vienna.

Additionally, she appears regularly with the Netherlands Bach Society, L’Orfeo Barockorchester, Freiburger Barockorchester, RIAS Kammerchor, Orchestra of the 18th Century, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra Toronto, The English Concert and Klangforum Wien under the direction of conductors such as Stefan Asbury, Beat Furrer, Michi Gaigg, Paul Goodwin, Philippe Herreweghe, Emilio Pomàrico, Hans-Christoph Rademann, Andreas Spering, Masaaki Suzuki and Jos van Veldhoven.
