Julia Lezhneva with the Berlin Philharmonic
Julia Lezhneva was a guest with the Berliner Philharmoniker on 9, 10 and 11 March. Handel's oratorio "Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" (HWV 46a) was performed under the direction of Emmanuelle Haïm. In this musical argument, "il Disinganno" (knowledge - Iestyn Davies) and "il Tempo" (time - Anicio Zorzi Giustiniani) try to convey the true values of life to the beautiful and frivolous "Bellezza" (beauty - Elsa Benoit) and to renounce the "Piacere" (pleasure - Julia Lezhneva).
The Berliner Morgenpost speaks of a "rousing performance" in which musicians and singers achieved "remarkable things": "with angelic beauty, Julia Lezhneva shaped her tones as "Piacere", showing an enormous spectrum in terms of colour and dynamics." Read the entire article here.
The Berliner Philharmoniker and the same cast will perform the work once again at the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden on 08.04.2023. This is the ticketlink.
