It was worth waiting for the Angel’s arias sung more than angelically by Roberta Mameli. But, in fact, they were something that we had to wait for. The first concert of the Misteria Paschalia festival, during which we heard Niccolò Jommelli’s oratorio Isacco, figura del Redentore [Isaac: A Figure of the Redeemer], reminded us of the differences between the church style and opera style of Italian music, even though these two styles may be similar to some extent. It also showed how important the class of performance is in both of these styles –exactly the one that was provided to us by singers and the I Barocchisti ensemble under the baton of Diego Fasolis yesterday.The press conference inaugurated the festival

Handel’s oratorio was created in response to a market need. Having settled in England, the composer not only supplied the audience with successive operas for over 20 seasons (in the generally prevailing Italian style, of course), but he also managed a theatre company in fierce rivalry with competitors and among problems such as a conflict between two prima donnas or caprices of lavishly rewarded most famous singers. This kind of business involved a considerable amount of risk, and both Handel and his competitors eventually went bankrupt. Then he eventually decided to use a method that had already brought him success in the past – instead of Italian operas, he started presenting English oratorios in London.A special offer of the Farina Restaurant
