  • Agrippina is brilliant, early Handel. Composed when he was just twenty-four, it was his first big hit in the theatre. It’s full of his fresh, exuberantly inventive music and sets one of the finest librettos Handel worked with
  • Arnold Östman is widely accepted as a leading authority on Baroque music
  • The London Baroque Players, an outstanding orchestra for early music, is specialised in music of the 17th and 18th century
  • Beautiful production, with an elegant and colourful staging
  • Recorded at the exquisite Rococo palace theatre in Schwetzingen, built in 1752

“...truly exhilarating .... Arnold Östman conducted the London Baroque Players and the cast of Michael Hampe's brilliantly musical production in one of the most infectious Schwetzingen productions of recent years.” -- Opera
