The conductor and harpsichordist, Bridget Cunningham brings back to life Handel’s pasticcio opera, Caio Fabbricio first performed in London in 1733 and based on an earlier opera by Johann Adolf Hasse (1732) Caio Fabbricio is London Early Opera’s eighth album in the prestigious Handel Series with Signum Records and is a pasticcio opera, a brilliant and well-considered collection of some of the finest 18th century Neapolitan arias by different composers, including Leonardo Vinci and Leonardo Leo, selected and arranged by Handel who composed his own dramatic recitatives.

London Early Opera (LEO) is a vibrant, baroque group of instrumentalists, singers, music teachers, researchers, historians and musicologists on a voyage of rediscovery making glorious baroque music and opera relevant today. As Artistic Director of London Early Opera, Bridget Cunningham is a leading exponent of baroque music and continues to create these outstanding recordings with Signum Records exploring Handel’s colourful life, influences and experiences which inspired his magnificent musical legacy.

★★★★ Performance ★★★★ Recording “In this world premiere recording artists shine brightly in a pasticcio opera…Bridget Cunningham directs Caio Fabbricio brilliantly, leading from the harpsichord to energise the other players, and to give them space to exploit juicy passages. The singers’ virtuosity and rich characterisations are delightful…Caio Fabbricio contains much fine music and compels fresh admiration of Handel’s orchestral skills. Execution of this project is uniformly excellent” – BBC Music Magazine

“Easier to enjoy this outpouring of vigorously performed baroque music, with seven of the finest young singers working in the early opera sphere: Fleur Barron, Morgan Pearse, Miriam Allan, Anna Gorbachyova-Ogilvie, Hannah Poulsom, Helen Charlston and Jess Dandy. The orchestral playing is strong and agile, directed by Cunningham from the harpsichord” – The Guardian
