George Frideric Handel: Benché tuoni e l’etra avvampi from Aci, Galatea e Polifemo, HWV 72 – Sara Mingardo, Le Concert d’Astrée, Emmanuelle Haïm


Benché tuoni e l’etra avvampi from Aci, Galatea e Polifemo, HWV 72 by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759)

Sara Mingardo, Galatea Le Concert d’Astrée Emmanuelle Haïm, direction Benché tuoni e l’etra avvampi pur di folgori e di lampi  non paventa il sacro alloro. Come quello anch’io pur sono che non cedo e m’abbandono a timore di rio martoro. Though thunder cracks and the heavens blaze, no thunderbolt or lightning flash affrights the sacred bay. And I am like the bay, for I  will not yield nor be subdued  by fear of cruel torments.
