Aria Album. Female Roles for High Voice from Handel's Operas

Italian opera was at the centre of Handel’s output for over 35 years with solo arias constituting one of the most important elements in Baroque opera. Dramatic roles, with their various moods and reactions, are characterised through arias. A large number of Handel’s operas also contain at least one entire scene for two to three voices. These numbers make use not only of similar lyrical or expressive forms of expression such as the arias, but also employ contrapuntal elements as found in Handel’s chamber music.

Based on the Bärenreiter vocal scores, these volumes contain some of Handel’s best-known arias, duets and trios, together with less well-known numbers of equally high musical quality. The arias are arranged chronologically, reflecting the order in which the operas were composed.

          Lovely collection, quite high range even for soprano, though technically difficult. Would help to have more information about this in the description. Copy is well laid out and clear print.

          Printed clearly on high quality paper and edited to the highest standard, this Urtext will please singer and accompanist alike. The range of arias has been thoughtfully chosen and translations are included in a separate section, so that the musical score itself is not cluttered with extraneous text.
