Three faces of disappointed love, brought to passionate life by mezzo-soprano Kate Lindsey.

After a first album dedicated to Weill, Zemlinsky and Korngold, Lindsey explores here her other repertoire of choice, the music of the eighteenth century. In partnership with Jonathan Cohen and Arcangelo, she has recorded three cantatas focusing on the myth of Ariadne.

Alessandro Scarlatti’s Ebra d’amor fuggia (1707) relates Ariadne’s flight alongside Theseus, for whom she expresses her tenderness in the magnificent aria “Pur ti stringo.” The same year, the young Handel composed his cantata Ah crudel, nel pianto mio, this time with an anonymous abandoned lover as the subject. In 1789, Joseph Haydn also turned to Ariadne, in a cantata for which several orchestrations exist. The one recorded here is by Sigismund Neukomm, Haydn’s pupil between 1797 and 1804.
