The Power of Love:
Arias from Handel Operas

The Power of Love


“At home equally in the passionate music for Almira or Armida, the dramatic depths and heights of Cleopatra and the teasing cynicism of Atalanta… Forsythe displays formidable technique… remarkable range of vocal colour… packs an overwhelming emotional punch. Apollo’s Fire, under the able baton of Jeannette Sorrell, provide exquisitely-judged orchestral support.” – EARLY MUSIC REVIEW (UK)

“Forsythe is a superb singer with staggering agility. This is a knockout recital by a major American soprano. Sorrell leads the period instruments of Apollo’s Fire… smoothly and expertly.” – CLASSICS TODAY
