Review by Henning Høholt

PARIS/FRANCE: An extraordinary experience in Paris, Mezzo Furioso at Théätre des Champs Élysées, wih music by Georg Friedrich Händel and Antonio Vivaldi : Airs d’opéras extraits de Serse, Orlando, Orlando Furioso…

It became one of the special occassions this year, It is rather not so ften that we meet three deep women voices as the only singing soloists at an opera concert, of course, I noticed that the composers are Händel and Vivaldi, and know that in theirs repertoire are many outstanding parts for these voices. That was what we got hear this evening

Jean-Christophe Spinosi is a capacity in his field, and together with his Ensemble Matheus, he has prepared a brilliant program, with very much variations, and with these three singers it became extraordinary. Among the highlights was Sonia Prina in hers (and Georg Friedrich Händels) “Ah, Stigie larve”, an extrait from Orlando, which ended the first part of the programme
. Another big hit was “Zeffiretti, che sussurate”, extrait from Ercole sul Termodante briliant performed by Paula Murrihy by Antonio Vivaldo. Furthermore the beautiful love duet, “Son nata a lagrimar” from Giulio Cesare by Händel
. Beautifully performed by Sonia Prina and Paula Murihu.  Malena Ernman started it all with “Ombra mai fu”  from Händels opera Serxes.

During the way we also enjoyed Finale from Telemans concerto grosso for travers flute and flute played by Alexis Kossenko and Jean-Marc Goujon.  And it all ended (before all the encores for thre sopranos, violin, flute and so on.) with The finale from the concerto for two violins by Vivaldi with Jean-Christophe Spinosi and his concertmaster Laurence Paugam
