A disc of Handel opera arias from Roberta Invernizzi is remarkable because, surprisingly, it breaks new ground for the Milanese soprano. True, she has taken part in complete operas on disc as on stage, and has recorded arias by other composers of the time such as Vivaldi, Leo, Porpora, Feo or Mancini (Arias for Domenico Gizzi and I Viaggi di Faustina being two recent albums).

Invernizzi’s majestic sweep of Handelian queens - Cleopatra, Berenice, Arianna and Alcina, among them - takes us through a chequered period in the composer’s career, when he led the two Royal Academies of Music in the 1720s and 1730s. At this time, he was writing for magnificent and tempestuous divas such as Francesca Cuzzoni and Anna Maria Strada del Pò – a selection of their roles is to be heard on this new Glossa recording.

These are choppy waters through which Roberta Invernizzi sails with unquestionable skill: in complete control of her native language and dominance of Handel’s stylistic demands all allied to her lustrous vocal tones. Sympathetic accompaniment is from Fabio Ciofini and his Accademia Hermans, which works extensively in the Perugian Teatro Cucinelli in Solomeo.

“Invernizzi has a fresh, bright soprano that supplies constant delight” Sunday Times
