Notes and Editorial Reviews

This refreshed reissue of Brilliant Classics's Handel box contains several new recordings which weren't available at the time of the initial issue. Highlights include two volumes in the ongoing and pioneering series of the complete Italian cantatas (Volume 3 will be out later in 2011): superbly idiomatic Italian accounts backed up by up-to-the-minute scholarship.

A wider survey of Handel's output could scarcely be imagined, making this the perfect introduction to one of 'our' musical geniuses, whether you are English, German, Italian or just a music-lover of the world. All the famous works are here: Fireworks and Water Music in sparkling digital recordings; Coronation Anthems sung by the Choir of King's College Cambridge; his
Read more thrilling early opera Rinaldo in an authentically Italian live performance.

The complete chamber music is essayed in fine style by L'Ecole d'Orphee, and the great oratorios are included in a variety of performing styles, including a splendid live recording of Messiah made by the Choir of King's College Cambridge. As a bonus, this performance is also available to watch on the DVD.
