Rinaldo, HWV 7: Lascia ch’io pianga


Recommended Posts

Rinaldo, composed by Georg Friedrich Händel, was the first Italian opera written for the London stage. The premiere was at the Queens Theatre, Haymarket, 24 February 1711. This is an aria from the second act, sung but the character Almirena, addressing the Saracen king of Jerusalem.


Here are two performances. One is by Albrecht Mayer, principal oboist of the Berlin Philharmonic, and Orchestra Sinfonia Varsovia.



The other one is performed by Norwegian soprano Aksel Rykkvin and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. (Now, he is an equally skilled baritone.)
