With its splendidly colorful, finely balanced instrumentation, effective choral writing and virtuoso solos, the oratorio Solomon displays the complete range and variety of Handel's expressive capabilities. The recording presents the complete masterpiece, without any deletions, as Handel conceived it. This sets it apart from the myriad of recordings which are either abridged or have altered the sequence of the work.
