5.0 out of 5 stars Handel's Italian Triumph August 26, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno (The Triumph of Time and Disillusionment) was the first composition by the young Georg Friedrich Haendel (1685-1759) of such scope and magnificence that it must be considered one of his indispensable masterpieces. Written in Rome by the twenty-two year old Saxon, conducted in its premiere by Corelli, the work was never to be forgotten by its creator. Handel lengthened and modified portions of it in 1737 in London, under the title Il Trionfo del Tempo e della Verita, and reworked it with an English libretto as the final effort of his life, with the title The Triumph of Truth and Beauty. If you happen to have other recordings of any of the three versions, you might as well give them to your local library; after you hear this performance by `Concerto Italiano', it's unlikely that you'll listen to any other ever again.

Like the brilliant smaller cantatas Handel composed in his Roman years (there are three recent recordings of such works by `La Risonanza', of surpassing beauty), Il Trionfo is 100% in the Italian manner, bursting with vocal exuberance and athleticism, utterly passionate, yet underneath the pyrotechnics one finds the profound structural mastery of counterpoint that the Saxon brought with him from Germany. Handel was, dare I say, the greatest Italian composer of the 18th Century. He was obviously also the greatest English composer of the 18th Century. Listening to his Italian triumphs, however, I find myself wishing he'd stayed in Rome and never removed his art to stuffy Calvinist England. Superb as his English music would be, there was something in the air in Italy that might have pushed him to even greater artistic accomplishments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Version (of 3); Excellent Performance September 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno" (The Triumph of Time and Dis-Illusion) is often called Handel's first oratorio, although it is more a large-scale Italian cantata or serenata, like "Aci, Galatea, e Polifemo" or "Apollo e Dafne." Handel wrote this, the original, version of the work during his formative stay in Italy in 1707. He produced a second Italian-language version ("Il Trionfo del Tempo e della Verita," or The Triumph of Time and Truth) for London in 1737. At the end of his life, Handel produced a third, English version--"The Triumph of Time and Truth."

"Il Trionfo" comprises a moralistic debate between the allegorical characters Beauty, Pleasure, Time, and Dis-Illusion. The story carries little interest, but Handel's music is ravishing.

This 2007 reissue (recorded in 2000) is clearly the best recording of the first version--especially at its two-disc-for-one bargain price. The singers, period instrumentalists, and recording are all first-rate.

There's a very good recording of the second version available on Naxos (conducted by J.C. Martini) and an excellent recording of the final version on Hyperion (with Emma Kirkby and others, conducted by Denys Darlow). I enjoy all three. Forced to choose, however, my favorite is the last one.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential June 1, 2008
By St. Mym
Format:Audio CD
There is not a single duff piece in this early oratorio, and I cannot conceive of a better performance than it gets here. This is possibly the most glorious available recording of anything in the baroque repertoire. You can hear all the excitement that Handel must have felt on his exposure to the italian musical scene.

Buy it.

You will *not* regret it.

..then this is the one! If I try to use words to describe the beauty and perfection of this oratorio, only superlatives pop into my mind. "Breathtakingly dramatic, ravishingly beautiful, deeply moving, wonderfully coloured, fresh, immediate, brilliant" to quote a British critic about this work. For more superlatives, see the previous reviews. This is spectacular Handel indeed, and the four singers and Alessandrini's Concerto Italiano perform it as spectacularly as anyone might want.

Il trionfo del tempo e del disinganno ("The Triumph of Time and Disillusionment") is one of Handel's earliest masterpieces. Composed in 1707 for Cardinal Pamphili, Handel's patron and librettist in Rome, it's only recently that this work has attracted the interest and praise that it so much deserves. It's an allegorical drama about Belleza (Beauty), Piacere (Pleasure), Tempo (Time), and Disinganno (Disillusionment). Beauty undergoes a spiritual crisis in having to choose between carnal pleasure and godlike virtue. As one would predict, Beauty and Pleasure lose the battle to Time and Disillusionment..

The glorious sequence of arias and ensembles includes the famous 'Lascia la spina' (later recycled in Rinaldo as 'Lascia ch'io pianga'), played here at a brisk tempo to great effect, and Beauty's exquisite final `Tu del Ciel ministro eletto'. Handel borrowed various arias from Il Trionfo for later works, such as Agrippina, Giulio Cesare and Rodelinda. This testifies to the pride which Handel must have felt for this oratorio. Soprano Deborah York (Beauty) and contralto Sarah Mingardo (Disillusionment) are the unsurpassed star singers here, but soprano Gemma Bertagnolli and tenor Nicolas Sears are a very good match (although Bertagnolli's voice sounds slightly strained here and there).
