Venice Baroque Orchestra
Mezzo-soprano Ann Hallenberg pays tribute to a fellow Swede, legendary soprano Jenny Lind. Hallenberg, praised by The Guardian for her “sensational virtuosity and warm tone,” channels Lind in Baroque arias that abound in rich melody and pulse-quickening flash. She is joined by the Venice Baroque Orchestra—one of the great period-instrument ensembles—praised by The New York Times for its “fresh sound and rhythmic exuberance” in this unique program.
