Artists: Ruby Hughes, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment
Conductor: Laurence Cummings
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Chandos
CD Release Date: February 12, 2018

Excelling in Renaissance and baroque repertoire, the young British soprano Ruby Hughes pays tribute to Handel’s last prima donna, the Italian soprano Giulia Frasi. For her debut recording on Chandos, Hughes has chosen a selection of celebrated arias composed for Frasi by Handel, in his late oratorios: Susanna, Solomon, Theodora, and Jephtha. Additionally, she has made selections by 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 program is unique of its kind.
