Handel in Italy: Apollo e Dafne
Arias from the opera Agrippina
Telemann Concerto for Flute & Recorder E min
Linden Baroque directed by Steven Devine
soloists Kate Semmens and Giles Davies

Handel began his ambitious and dramatic cantata Apollo e Dafne for Soprano, Baritone and orchestra in Venice in 1709. He completed it the following year in Hanover after arriving to take up his appointment as Kapellmeister to the Elector, the later King George I. The hugely successful opera Agrippina was written for the Venice Carnevale the same year. Both works show the importance of Handel's Italian experience in helping to shape his later brilliant operatic career in London.
