Notes and Editorial Reviews

Handel arrived in Hamburg in 1703, aged eighteen. He spent four years in the city and wrote several works for the town's opera house. Hamburg opera was a rather eclectic beast at the time, drawing on Italian and French language and instrumental style alongside the native German. Handel fell happily into this genre; this CD brings together a selection of the delightful orchestral music (which tends to be in the French style) that Handel wrote there.

'A highly entertaining collection. Delightful rarities from the young Handel' (Classic CD) 'A marvellous disc' (The Independent') 'The disc is warmly commended' (Fanfare)
