 Fabio Bonizzoni Conductor

Fabio Bonizzoni returns with his long-awaited recording of Aci , Galatea and Polyphemus in Handel, serving both as an annex to its winning series of Italian cantatas of Caro Sassone as new delivery of your exploration Serenade ( with two gems already published , dedicated to Vivaldi and Alessandro Scarlatti ) .

And Bonizzoni , once again , has chosen as a traveling companion in this case for the role of the hapless shepherd Aci - the sparkling soprano Roberta Invernizzi , whose captivating contributions to the Handel series with The Risonanza and recently published tour of the Baroque Neapolitan Antonio Florio in hand I Viaggi di Faustina received huge critical acclaim and enthusiastic fans . Next to Roberta Invernizzi , and to do justice to the dramatic energy and hectic virtuosity required by the score of Handel , written for a wedding in 1708, during the composer’s stay in Naples (Carlo Vitali relives the moment in his delightful essay ) are French mezzo Blandine Staskiewicz , which admirably portrays the highlights of Galatea, and Argentine Lisandro Abadie low , whose haunting vocal range gives life to the Polyphemus monster .

No less attractive are the requirements posed to a young Handel instrumental forces at their disposal , and that the good work of The Risonanza provides us with his usual elegance and exuberance, in a recording made in June 2012 in Saint- Michel in thiérache , France.

 "... An admirable job all round."

John W Barker - American Record Guide - March/April 2014

 "... a survey of music that should be snapped up by handelians everywhere - with thanks to Bonizzoni and all those who have worked with him over the years to make these Glossa issues such a success."

Barry Brenesal - Fanfare - March/aApril 2014
