La Francesina

Händel's sweet bird

The musical portrait of a great 18th century singer, muse of Georg Friedrich Händel. In this program, the Belgian soprano Sophie Junker pays tribute to La Francesina and celebrates the thriving collaboration that bound her to Handel for over a decade. From opera to oratorio, this recital aims to highlight both the voice of this muse and at the same time, to show how Handel progressively abandoned the splendour of the Italian opera for the spiritual elevation of the oratorio.
