Lea Desandre sings “E un foco quel d’amore”

The young French-Italian singer Lea Desandre sings the playful aria ‘E un foco quel d’amore’ from Handel’s pastoral cantata Aminta e Fillide.

She joins Sabine Devieilhe, Le Concert d’Astrée and Emmanuelle Haïm on an album of Handel’s Italian cantatas that Gramophone chose as its Recording of the Month for December 2018.

“Both singers have unblemished voices of beautiful quality,” wrote Richard Wigmore, “Sabine Devieilhe, as Aminta, pellucid and free-soaring, Lea Desandre with a dark flare in her high mezzo … They interact vividly in recitative, and in their arias strike an ideal balance between refinement and intensity.”
