Carlo Bergonzi sings Turandot

Today, most people have become accustomed to a bigger sound in this role. Compared to its more stentorean exponents, Bergonzi is a little short on decibels, but he convinces the listener that Calaf is actually in love with Turandot, as so few of his colleagues do.

Countertenor Robert Expert sings “Then long eternity shall greet your bliss” from Handel’s oratorio Samson.

I love this oratorio! It has some of Handel’s most sophisticated and complex writing. And it also happens to have some fiendishly difficult arias in it (like this one).
