Notes & Reviews:

This particular recording was made during the last year of Helmut Koch's life. He not only trained under Fritz Lehmann and Hermann Scherchen but also worked as a sound engineer for various radio stations and recording companies. Koch was widely known for his performances of Handel so this disc of highlights is ideal for the listener getting to know this music.
