Notes & Reviews:

With more than seventy vocal works for the stage and the concert hall, Handel left us as many instrumental overtures. In these is crystallized his art of immediate expression through his creative ability in translating images into sounds, creating genuine musical metaphors. The Montreal Baroque Orchestra delivers some of Handel's less frequently performed overtures in all their theatrical and dramatic design.
