Notes & Reviews:

Throughout his life, the oboe played a key role in the music of Georg Friedrich Handel. For no other instrument did he compose such passionate, dramatic and virtuosic music. On this disc, the Batzdorfer Hofkapelle presents a selection of Handel's most beautiful works featuring the oboe. Xenia Löffler, member of the Akademe für Alte Musik Berlin, is the soloist. Vocal parts in the arias with oboe are sung by the young coloratura soprano Marie Friederike Schöder, a shooting star of the baroque music scene.

BBC Music Magazine, Awards Issue 2015.
What [Löffler] and soprano Marie Friederike Schöder have chosen...fully illustrates Handel's intuitive understanding of the oboe's expressive range...Löffler is fluent and expressive both in her capacity as soloist and in her sympathetic partnership with Schoder...Stylish support from the Batzdorfer Hofkapelle sets the seal on a rewarding issue.

Early Music Review, February 2015
Marie Friederike Schöder negotiates her vocal tightrope with enviable aplomb ... she is ably partnered by the faultlessly breath-controlled oboe of Xenia Löffler ... . Batzdorfer Hofkapelle are to be very warmly commended for this fine picture of the young Handel!
