Love in Arcadia: Duets and Trios by George Frideric Handel, features performances by Laura Heimes and Julianne Baird, sopranos, Tony Boutté, tenor and Sumner Thompson, bass; accompanied by Douglas McNames, cello, and Karen Flint, Harpsichord. Rarely performed or recorded. The duets and trios on this CD were largely composed in Handelâs early career when he was in Italy (c. 1708-1711) and, while quit different from his operatic compositions, offer the musical delights expected from this great composer.
While he is mostly known for his oratorios, Messiah and Israel in Egypt among others, and his Italian operas, written after he had settled in London, Handel spent several years inn Italy where he was associated with the Arcadian Academy, writing seven of the ten works on this recording. The other three were written later in his career and reflect the music of his operas â indeed, some of these composition were reworked and will be recognized as some of his most loved choruses from Messiah.
Karen Flint, harpsichordist and artistic director of Brandywine Baroque since its founding, teaches harpsichord at the University of Delaware. She has degrees from Oberlin Conservatory of Music and The University of Michigan.
Her recent recordings include: Joseph Bodin de Boismortier: Cello Sonatas Op. 26 & Op. 50 âElegant and Delightful,â (Gramophone, June 2008); Oh! The Sweet Delights of Love (Music by Purcell); The Lass with the Delicate Air and C. P. E. Bach Trio Sonatas for Plectra Music.

A native of Rochester NY, Ms. Heimes holds Master of Music degrees from Temple University.
Julianne Baird, soprano, has been hailed a ânational artistic treasureâ (New York Times) and a âpeerless performer in the repertory of the baroque.â She maintains a busy concert and recording schedule. With more than 125 recordings to her credit on Decca, Deutsche Gramophone, Dorian and Newport Classics, Julianne Baird is widely acknowledged as one of leaders in music of the 17th and 18th centuries.
