Label: BIS | Catalog N.: CD-1864 | TT: 157:4

Jephtha (1752) was George Frederick Handel's final oratorio, and it was composed during a period of incipient blindness and declining health. Yet the composer's artistic powers were undiminished in this dramatization of the Biblical story, for the arias and choruses are as memorable as any from Handel's earlier works in the genre, including Messiah and Israel in Egypt. This 2008 recording by Fabio Biondi, the Collegium Vocale Ghent, and the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra is a brilliant period presentation, and the spry rhythms, lean counterpoint, clear textures, and distinctive colors of original instruments combine to make this an especially enjoyable performance of a fairly neglected masterpiece.

The plot of "Jephtha" is based, with alterations, on Chapter XI of Judges. This begins, "Now Jephtha the Gileadite was a mighty man of valour, and he was the son of a harlot." He was disinherited by his half-brothers, the sons of Gilead's legitimate wife, and went into exile, becoming a kind of outlaw leader. Now the Israelites, including [hose of Gilead, who have been following Mrange gods, are being oppressed by the Ammonites. [/quote]

“Perhaps my most personal project to date,” is how American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato describes In War and Peace: Harmony through Music. Her ambitions for this collection of arias from Baroque operas are substantial. Surrounded as we are by instability, she hopes it will help us find an answer to a vitally important question: “In the midst of chaos, how do you find peace?”

One of opera’s most outspoken and impassioned personalities, Joyce DiDonato reminds us with her new albumIn War and Peacethat music “soothes turmoil, threatens power and the status quo, and gloriously exalts the spirit”. Her selection of arias demonstrates how powerfully Baroque opera explores the extremes of human nature – from the tumult of Handel’sScenes of Horror, Scenes of Woeto Purcell’s descent into despair,Dido’s Lament.Joyce’s longtime partners, the spirited Italian Baroque ensemble Il Pomo d’Oro, join her on this unique journey through sublime, challenging music; through chaos transformed by the eternal search for serenity.
