Acis and Galatea (HWV 49) was originally a masque composed by George Frideric Händel. He first composed this piece while he was living at Cannons (the seat of James Brydges, 1st Duke of Chandos) during the summer of 1718. It is set to a libretto by John Gay, Alexander Pope, and John Hughes, who borrowed freely from John Dryden's English translation of Ovid published in 1717, The Story of Acis, Polyphemus and Galatea...

Opus 3 is made up of assorted versions of concerti. Händel arranged and re-arranged many of these works often and so a definitive edition is probably impossible to assemble....

Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 3 Cd, Covers | 737 Mb
Date: 2008

Handel's solo keyboard works tend to be overshadowed by Bach's and are thus rarely heard. This is a great pity, as there is much delightful music in these works. This is brought out by the young German pianist Ragna Schirmer in this 3-CD collection. Played on a modern piano, rather than on the harpsichord for which they were written, Frau Schirmer produces effortless, elegant performances that dance beautifully along.

The English passion for the oratorio is largely due to Handel, who was forced to find a new style of music with which to rekindle the interest of the public. For twenty years he had been presenting operas in London, but the last seasons had been increasingly unsuccessful as audiences took against attending staged works in Italian. The prior success of 'Esther' had launched 'oratorio' in London, and set Handel on a compositional path which was to prove his principal sphere of work for the rest of his life...
