    Through the splendid voice of Vivica Genaux and Les Musiciens du Louvre, we can grasp the expressive subtlety of two musicians who basked in the favour and glory of the last Baroque.

    Program

    A contemporary of Bach and Handel, Nicola Porpora became Handel’s adversary in opera, especially when he directed the Opera of the Nobility to rival the Royal Academy of Music which was under the direction of Handel. Mezzo-soprano Vivica Genaux and Les Musiciens du Louvre will give us another taste of this rivalry in a musical arm wrestle that aims to show the beauty of the proposals of both composers. Through a splendid voice we’ll be able to grasp the expressive subtlety of two musicians who basked in the favour and glory of the last Baroque.
