Notes & Reviews:

Handel’s impressive closing act in the genre of the “concerto grosso” is cast in a whole new light by Michael Hofstetter and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, in a recording faithful to the great shifts in performance practice of recent decades. From 2006-13, Michael Hofstetter, the internationally renowned specialist for authentic performing practice, was the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra’s principal conductor. Mr. Hofstetter is an important presence on the world’s greatest opera stages, and has won, or been nominated for, a number of prizes from the most prestigious opera publications. He has been a regular presence at the Händel Festival in Karlsruhe since 1999 and pioneered at the Ludwigsburg Festspiele world premieres and recordings of works by Salieri, Gluck, Cimarosa, Hasse and E.T.A. Hoffmann.
