This is the next release in Phoenix Edition’s WDR Cologne Broadcasts series featuring the Capella Coloniensis. The Capella Coloniensis have been a leading orchestra in the field of historical performance practice since they were founded in 1954.

To celebrate Handel’s anniversary year Phoneix Edition are delighted to present a recording of Apollo e Daphne, one of Handel’s most ambitions early cantatas. The graceful orchestration and plaintive melodies are what makes this one act opera enchanting and it is indicative of the fruitful operatic career that was to follow.

This authentic historical recording is available at an attractive low price.
