KARTHÄUSER und POLLAK with „Susanna“ in Wien and Madrid

Depictions of Susanna at her Bath are widely familiar, as the subject gave rise to several masterworks, including one by Jacopo Tintoretto at Vienna’s Museum of Art History. However, the story from the Book of Daniel also inspired George Frideric Handel to write a dramatic oratorio first performed in 1749 at London’s Covent Theatre. Sophie Karthäuser already recorded the title role with Les Arts Florissants under William Christie; now she returns to it with the Wiener Akademie under Martin Haselböck. The young soprano Marie-Sophie Pollak makes her Vienna Musikverein debut in the role of the Attendant, which she interprets both in Vienna and at the following concert at the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid.
