Adam Plachetka - baritone, Katerina Knezikova - soprano (10)
Czech Ensemble Baroque Orchestra + Choir (on period instruments)
Leader - Dagmar Valentova
Choirmaster - Tereza Valkova
Conductor - Roman Valek

Recorded at the Basilica of St. Prokop, Trebic, August 31 - September 2, 2012.

The oratorios represent the apex of Handel's professional career and they even saved the composer when he was facing repeated crises of his operatic enterprise. These works of his have remained in the European repertoire and even if Handel hadn't written
anything else, his Messiah alone would have earned him immortality. The programme of this CD is made up of arias that Handel wrote in his oratorios for bass or bass-baritone - the vocal category embodying heroism, enduring faith and resolve. Owing to his
distinct masculinity, combined with determination, pleasantly tinted timbre and natural musicality, Adam Plachetka, a soloist of the Wiener Staatsoper, is an ideal singer to portray such Handel roles. A watershed in the artist's meteoric career came in
September 2011, when Plachetka dazzled the Viennese audience in the title role of Mozart's opera Don Giovanni. On this recording, the soloist has a worthy partner: the superlative Czech Ensemble Baroque, conducted by Roman Valek, who prove beyond all
doubt that Handel is not the exclusive preserve of the English.
The Wiener Staatsoper soloist Adam Plachetka's debut album, featuring Handel arias.
(Supraphon 2012)
