Amanda Forsythe, “one of the best Baroque sopranos on the scene today,” (Boston Classical Review) is Oliver’s guest this week. Forsythe combines astounding agility, staggering breath control, and imaginative ornamentation with beautiful tone in works by Handel and his contemporaries.


Playlist to include arias from George Frideric Handel’s operas Almira and Giulio Cesare; a chamber duet by Agostino Steffani; and a preview of Amanda Forsythe’s new recording of music by Johann Gottlieb Graun.
