Description: Like the above release, this one is also sourced from a single archive - a cabinet in the Dresden Hofkapelle which was unopened from a century until around 1860 and whose contents are only being seriously studied now. These are all orchestral works, with several three-movement symphonies, Hasse's being the closest to Classical style. Why the Handel? It's got two extra movements and a pair of flutes, all added by Pisendel. Dresden Baroque Orchestra.
