The name says it all: when the ensemble Il pomo d’oro was founded ten years ago, it named itself after a sensational Baroque opera by Antonio Cesti. Since then, musical theatre of the 17th and 18th centuries has been the focus of Il pomo d’oro, which the press describes as “perhaps the most exciting Baroque team at the moment” thanks to its lively, spirited music-making. In a concert entitled Tenore Assoluto, the ensemble and singer Michael Spyres present virtuoso tenor arias from hit operas by George Frideric Handel, Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Adolph Hasse and others.
