Belcantismo testbed
According to Arturo Reverter: “There is no doubt that Rinaldo It is one of the most famous operas of Haendel…a real salvo at the time, shortly after the composer landed in London after his first dabbling in Germany and his stay in Italy. His taste for bel canto, not the ornaments and pure virtuosity, but the full sentence that carries auditor singer and breathe at the same time, shows the way. In this as in other operas, in its perennial quest of the most impressive vocal effects, Haendel raised great demands on the soloists. He was called to the main resources of a belcantismo beginning to acquire its season and then coming from the hand of the leaders of the singing schools, which they established the sacrosanct golden rules that would govern and enhance the art, you raising it to heights never reached inaccessible after. All this mandatory voice, that it would develop and refine over time, It was applied and, naturally, to operas of the first second, or, if you will-period Haendel. Rinaldo It would be a great test. All sources agree that music was ready in about two weeks, revealing the ease of the composer and his ability to use music from previous scores, something that had already practiced in Agrippina. For example, Aryan Let me cry It comes from an instrumental sarabanda of Almira, already included, with another letter (Leave the plug), in his opera The Triumph of Time and Disillusion.”
