Notes & Reviews:

A continuation of the series so successfully begun with The Secret Bach, The Secret Handel brings to light a treasury of keyboard music by Handel played on one of the most intimate instruments, the clavichord. The Secret Handel includes a reconstruction by Hogwood and clavichord expert Derek Adlam of a suite for two clavichords by Handel of which only one part survives. The program is divided over two CDs in part because there is too much music for one, but also because Hogwood believes that listening at the appropriate level to a full 70 minutes of clavichord is unnaturally tiring; the clavichord is a very quiet instrument.
