Description
George Frideric Handel's gargantuan talent and range of artistry are on full display in this treasurable set, which is yours for the price of one regular CD. After a fruitful period of apprenticeship in Italy, Handel meant to sojourn briefly in England but ended up remaining the rest of his life, becoming a national glory. It was in England that he composed such masterpieces as Messiah and one of the most exciting of all opera seria (Giulio Cesare), both heard here in full versions. With performers from the crčme de la crčme of the European musical scene—including Andreas Scholl singing highlights from the operas Rodelinda, Serse, and Alcina—the set features the Water Music suite; the Concerti Grossi, op. 3; the Concerto for Organ in F Major ("The Cuckoo and the Nightingale"); Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne; Dixit Dominus; and more. An extensive illustrated booklet contains full notes on all the works in this elegant and sturdy boxed set.

"The vigorous, uncut performance [of Giulio Cesare] led by René Jacobs features thrilling singing by Jennifer Larmore and Bernarda Fink."—Washington Post
