Capriccio Barockorchester

Some three hundred compositions by Handel such as Overtures, dances and short instrumental interludes titled Ritornello, Sinfonia or Sarabande are hardly ever perceived as a separate category, despite appearing in his most important compositions. Such observations provided the basis for this concept album. The pre-dominant instruments of the first Suite are the horns, which originally play an important role in the Overture to Handel's great success Samson and the operas Giulio Cesare and Ariodante. In the second group, launched by the Overture to the early opera Teseo, various solo instruments are highlighted: horn, recorder and in particular the traverse flute. The last cycle focuses on the virtuoso trumpet.
