Sharon Carty mezzo-soprano
With baroque ensemble led by Claire Duff

Arias by Riccardo Broschi (brother of Farinelli), Bertoni, Giacomelli as well as Handel

“Suitcase arias” or “Arie di Baule” were given this name because famous singers throughout the 17th and 18th centuries brought them with them on their travels, and these arias were regularly “inserted” into operas as party pieces by other composers or into pasticcios with the work of several composers.
