Handel's Last Prima Donna - Giulia Frasi in London

Ruby Hughes soprano

Ruby Hughes pays tribute to Italian singer, Giulia Frasi, who came to London in 1742 and, over her 30-year career, became the most celebrated soprano in the English oratorio style and not just for Handel, as this disc goes to prove.  With the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and conductor Laurence Cummings Ruby makes her debut disc for Chandos.

Prokofiev: Violin Sonatas

Alexandra Conunova violin

Alexandra Conunova makes her debut recording on the Aparte label, together with pianist Michael Lifits.  The repertoire is close to Alexandra's heart, the contrasting Violin Sonatas by Prokofiev - one of deep anguish, the other of simplicity and lyricism - providing a synthesis of Prokofiev’s style. There's an accompanying film too.
