Notes & Reviews:

The main achievements of the Baroque style were the rise of opera and oratorio, the development of the cantata and the evolution of the bel canto style and figured bass accompaniment. This recording reflects these innovations in a vast range of chamber and orchestral works, solo compositions, and dramatic vocal music, both sacred and secular.
