When we look good, the great majority of the first operas in the history of music in the early seventeenth century, took out about the characters of mythology: Dafne, Euridice, Orfeo. And that was just the start of a great tradition, Handel did not fail to continue a century later. This album of virtuoso soprano Christiane Karg and mezzo-soprano Romina Basso looks at many Handelian incursions in mythology, which gave rise to lavish and hyper-virtuoso arias and duets in works - operas but also cantatas - such as Semele, Hercules, he Parnasso in festa, Apollo e Dafne and others, is sung in Italian or English. These are mostly works of the great London maturity, except the cantata Escheggiate 1710 in London certainly written already but in a kind Italianate Handel had brought in luggage after his long stay in Italy. Both singers are accompanied by the Amsterdam ensemble Il Complesso Barocco, accustomed to great work of Handel.
