About this release

Available on SACD, organ concertos by Handel. Organist Christian Schmitt plays the concertos Nos. 1, 3, 10 and 14, together with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. They are spacious yet intimate performances in which detailed attention is paid to dynamics and effective registration. The SACD technique enhances these qualities even further.

An organ concerto on harp? Yes. The sixth concerto is often performed on the organ since the composer entered it as such in the first edition of the 6 concertos opus 4. However, Handel originally wrote it for the harp. On this SACD harpist Charlotte Balzereit plays this at times glorious piece in a delightfully joyous manner.
