Reviews of this publication:


* Georg Friedrich Händel

Handel’s “Deidamia” was premièred on 10 January 1741 only a few
weeks after “Imeneo”.
The librettist Paoli Rolli, a previously unsucessful librettist for
Handel, delivered with his finest
work “Deidamia”. On 10 February 1741 the third and final opera
performances of this work
took place under Handel’s direction. Oddly enough “Deidamia” would
not be performed again
until the beginning of the 20th century. This opera is based on the
themes of humour and
seriousness. The personal harmonising of Heroism (Achilles) and Love
(Deidamia) build on
the essential dramatic features of this work. “Deidamia” is the last
great opera in a series of
masterpieces: “Orlando”, “Poro”, “Ezio”, “Ariodante”, “Alcina”,
“Serse” and “Imeneo”.

- Reliable vocal score based on the Urtext of the Halle Handel

- Easy-to-play piano part
