Notes & Reviews:

Handel was already in his early twenties, having spent four years in Hamburg, when he arrived in Italy, and the short period he spent there (1707-1710) allowed him to develop his sophisticated skills. He wrote music in the grand style, and among his most important works of that time were the solo Italian Cantatas, where the soloist is accompanied by a rich instrumental ensemble. Adele Stolte, following the acclaim her first recordings of the Bach Cantatas for radio brought her in 1958, was for many years the soprano of choice for the Leipzig Thomaskirche Choir.
