„Recording an album entirely devoted to Händel is an unmissable opportunity for any singer who loves Baroque music, but especially for a countertenor. In fact the sheer choice of arias, each more wonderful than the one before, is staggering, but does mean that every singer can find the numbers best suited to his or her voice and personality.

Although it’s only in the last few years that I’ve been able to play the big Händel roles on stage – Sesto in Giulio Cesare, for example, or Ruggiero in Alcina – for this recital I wanted to choose a selection of arias from less well-known operas. I’ve been performing some of them for many years now and I felt ready to record them with my ensemble, Artaserse, a group of players who have gained further maturity from the experience of performing around the world over the years.

As Andrew Manze remarks in the liner note for this album, the sonata was perhaps "but a toy theatre in Handel's world of architectural splendours." Indeed, the eight sonatas, with the addition of two independent movements, provide an insight into a world far removed from the imposing, monumental Handelian works known to many listeners. But these works are by no means a lesser manifestation of the composer's genius.

Even though Handel's œuvre for solo keyboard is somewhat irregular and less extensive than that of Bach or Domenico Scarlatti, it remains nevertheless immensely fascinating and surprising. In fact, by exploring the various genres (suite, capriccio, fugue, chaconne, …) outside of the famous Walsh collections of Suites (1720 & 1733), we discover the composer's many distinct faces. For his first solo album Philippe Grisvard looks also at composers who played essential roles in the development of Handel's style, such as Zachow, Krieger, Mattheson and Babell and thus draws a vivid and colourful picture of Handel's life.
