MirrorsJeanine De Bique & Concerto Köln

Presentation

As in a broken mirror: Jeanine De Bique showcases the many facets of the great baroque heroines in the operas of Handel and his contemporaries 

Cleopatra, Agrippina, Rodelinda, Alcina … Behind the melodious names of the great female characters of baroque opera lurk complex psychologies and music that covers the full spectrum of human emotions. In her new concert programme Mirrors, Trinidadian soprano Jeanine De Bique brings together some of the most virtuosic arias of these heroines. Accompanied by the ensemble Concerto Köln, she allows different versions to engage in dialogue with each other: first and foremost those of George Frideric Handel, who drove these typical da capo arias to their high point, but also those of lesser-known contemporaries such as Carl Heinrich Graun, Georg Philipp Telemann and Riccardo Broschi, the brother of the famous castrato Farinelli. These composers often based themselves on the same libretti and in many cases were the actual fathers of these characters, which you can discover in all their different facets during this concert.
