About this album

‘Very long, long arias and almost endless cantatas which have neither the right skill nor the right taste, though their harmony is perfect.’ wrote Johann Mattheson about the twenty year old Händel in Hamburg in ‘Grunlagen einder Ehrenpforte’. According to Mattheson it was only after Händel had gained some experience with opera that his works acquired the necessary refinement.
