Notes & Reviews:

Simone Kermes - the German soprano called "queen of baroque" by Opera News - presents a personal selection of Handel arias written for the celebrated dramatic Italian soprano Francesca Cuzzoni, who was a member of Handel's Royal Academy for five years. Kermes possesses a brilliant coloratura and intensely dramatic delivery, making these affective arias a high-grade emotional experience.

Including V'adoro pupille, Se Pieta, Piangero from Giulio Cesare, arias from Scipione, Alessandro, Rodelinda, Siroe, Tolomeo, Flavio, Riccardo Primo, Admeto. La Diva showcases the most popular and dramatic moments from Handel's Italian operas.
