This important new recording revisits George Frideric Handel’s monumental Suites de Pieces pour le Clavecin – subsequently known as the Eight Great Harpsichord Suites as well as his Chaconne in G major and some world premiere recordings of Handel’s superb arrangements of operatic arias and ouvertures which were specially reworked and ornamented by Handel for the harpsichord. The album celebrates the 300th anniversary of the first publication of these works on 14 November 1720.

Bridget Cunningham is an international conductor, prizewinning harpsichordist and musicologist who trained at the Royal College of Music and was awarded a Junior Fellowship to work in the Centre for Performance History and coach singers in the baroque style. Cunningham is also Artistic Director of London Early Opera with a number of critically-acclaimed recordings out on Signum Classics.

Recorded in St Augustine’s Church, Kilburn, London from 14th to 16th November 2019. Double-manual, Ruckers-style harpsichord provided and tuned by Andrew Wooderson with Keith McGowan (Neidhardt temperament, 1732).
