Belgian conductor and ensemble leader Paul Van Nevel was once described as the »Hercule Poirot of early music« – when it comes to digging up Renaissance and Baroque masterpieces, Van Nevel and his investigative skills have been predictably reliable for more than four decades. Now, with his Huelgas Ensemble, he presents another historical sensation of music: Francesca Caccini’s »Ruggiero dall’isola d'Alcina«, the earliest known opera from the pen of a woman composer. For Van Nevel, one thing is certain: »This opera is a milestone in the Italian music of the first half of the seventeenth century.«
