About

Excelling in Renaissance and baroque repertoire, the young British soprano Ruby Hughes pays tribute to Handelís last prima donna, the Italian soprano Giulia Frasi.

For her debut recording on Chandos she has chosen a selection of celebrated arias composed for Frasi by Handel, in his late oratorios Susanna, Solomon, Theodora, and Jephtha, and other composers of the era, whose works are now much less familiar, offering several modern premieres.

Performed on period instruments by the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, conducted by Laurence Cummings, and recorded in surround-sound, this programme is unique of its kind.
