5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing find December 3, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't remember how I happened to come across this work. I will admit that I was first attracted by the low price for two discs and then noticed the all-star cast including Lorraine Hunt, Jill Feldman, Judith Nelson, Drew Minter and David Thomas, with an orchestra led by Nicholas McGegan. Too good to pass up.In a word it is superb music performed as anyone familiar with these performers would expect absolutely magnificently. Because the theme in both works is pastoral you do not get the vigorous music one usually finds in Handel's operas and oratorios. This music is simply beautiful.

Format:Audio CD
George Frideric Handel (1685 – 1759): Italian Cantatas “Clori, Tirsi e Fileno” and “Apollo e Dafne”. Oboe Concerto in G Minor. Performed by various soloists and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, directed from the harpsichord by Nicholas McGegan.

Apollo e Dafne and the Oboe Concerto were recorded in February, 1985, at Old St. Hilary’s, Tiburon, California.

Harmonia Mundi HMX 2907348.49. Apollo e Dafne and the Oboe Concerto were originally published as HMC 905157 in 1985 and were re-issued as HMA 1905157 in 1996. Clori, Tirsi e Fileno was originally released in 1992 as HMU 907045.

As far as I can tell, Handel’s dramatic cantata “Apollo e Dafne” (presumably written in 1709 during the composer’s stay at Rome) and his oboe concerto (usually dated 1703, when Handel was still working at the theatre in Hamburg) were the first of a long series of recordings to be made by the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra for Harmonia Mundi. Together they reach a total time of 52’10” and would have fit nicely on an LP (the earlier issues divided the libretto up into “Side A” and “Side B”. Listening to them again after many years, there are two things which immediately call attention to themselves. One is the beautiful, silvery quality of the strings and woodwind played so enthusiastically by the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, which included as soloists such illustrious names as Michael Sand, violin, Susan Napper, violoncello, Janet See, transverse flute, and Bruce Haynes, oboe. In particular, it is the sound of Bruce Haynes’s wooden period oboe which dominates the recording and delights the listener over and over again, although not to the detriment of the other instruments.
