Recordings

Handel. Faramondo. (HWV 39, London 1738). Accent ACC 26402 (3 CDs, September 2014). Lawrence Cummings, FestspieleOrchester Göttingen. Radio broadcast. Clotilde: Anna Devin, soprano; Adolfo: Maarten Engeltjes, countertenor; Faramondo: Emily Fons, mezzo-soprano; Rosimonda: Anna Starushkevych, mezzo-soprano; Gerando: Christopher Lowrey, countertenor; Childerico: Iryna Dziashko, mezzo-soprano; Tebaldo: Edward Grint, baritone; Gustavo: Njål Sparbo, bass. I have a favorable impression after listening to the first half hour of the broadcast. Despite stage noise from the Eurotrash production, it's a good recording with some excellent singing.
