Bart Naessens & il Gardellino

Händel was acclaimed as an outstanding organist at an early age already. Throughout his career his virtuosity exerted a tremendous pull on the public. That Händel enjoyed improvising a lot is proven by his organ concertos, which leave artistic freedom of movement to the performer while concurrently offering an abundance of marvellous melodies. Top-notch orchestra il Gardellino combines these works with other instrumental pearls of the great
master.

In contrast to Bach, who was born in the same year, Händel did not descend from a musical family. However, his extraordinary musical talent was irrepressible, and despite his father’s plans for a different future, Händel very soon applied himself completely to music. The baroque ensemble il Gardellino, already more than twenty years appreciated as a standard in the world of early music, will make his mastery shine!
