The two Johann Adolf Hasse compositions recorded here are proof of the both high quality of his music and the broad range of styles which he had at his disposal.

Les chapeaux, les chaussures, les sous-vêtements, la terrible apparition de la femme-enfant, rien n’échappe à cet analyste aussi fin que spirituel. …
