Handel's 1715 opera seria Amadigi di Gaula was one of his earliest and best received works for the London stage. In terms of the conventions of modern stagecraft and the expectations of opera audiences, it's something of a hard sell, though. It has only four characters, and all are high voices - two sopranos, mezzo, and countertenor (or alto), and a chorus that appears only very briefly in the final number. Al Ayre Español, led by Eduardo López Banzo, plays with beautiful tone, high spirits, and dramatic nuance - the musical performances are altogether first rate and fully satisfying. The sound is clean and present, with good balance, but the continuo seems to be miked a little dryly, and sometimes comes across as brittle.
Amadigi di Gaula had its premiere in London in 1715. Its libretto, based on a medieval legend and encompassing such effects as a magically appearing sorceress, reflects the then-fashionable English taste for spectacle in operatic production. Musically, however, the opera is of chamber dimensions, involving just five soloists, and takes in some emotionally intimate moments. In this backward-looking piece – it even ends with a brief ballet – Handel doesn't attempt any structural innovations: the arias and duets are cast firmly in the tripartite da capo format.
