Notes & Reviews:

George Frideric Handel's successes and failures as an independent entrepreneur in mercantile London are legendary. His hard-fought rivalry with his colleague Porpora had artistic consequences amply documented in the development of his operas and oratorios. He then hit on the genial idea to present concertos on the organ to his public as entertainment during the intermissions and scored a sensational success. Even Porpora's star-studded ensemble of vocalists including the famous Farinelli as a powerful drawing card could no longer compete with him.

During later generations Handel's organ concertos inspired the production of highly imaginative arrangements. What Samuel de Lange (completely forgotten today, unjustly so) did with the sources about 150 years later is now for the first time being presented in audiophile form on the historic Furtwängler & Hammer organ in Lüneburg.

Rudolf Innig, a specialist in the special, has selected the Furtwängler & Hammer organ at the Church of St. Nicholas in Lüneburg (built in 1899) for de Lange's Handel transcriptions. This instrument's fifty stops on three manuals mean that it corresponds perfectly to de Lange's ideas.
