BCW: G.F. Handel's opera Alcina - Revised & updated Discography

May 18, 2017:

It is known that J.S. Bach did not composed an opera. However, as a "learned musician" he was familiar with operas of his time. In second half the 1730's he even performed with his Collegium Musicum in Leipzig several operatic arias, including two arias from the opera Alcina of his great contemporary G.F. Handel.

The discography pages of Alcina on the BCW have been revised and updated. See:
Complete Recordings (34): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Other/Handel-Alcina.htm
Recordings of the arias performed by J.S. Bach, which are not included in the complete recordings (13): http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Other/Handel-Alcina-RM.htm

I believe this is the most comprehensive discography of Alcina. If you are aware of a recording of the opera missing from these pages, or want to correct/add details of a recording already presented on the BCW, please do not hesitate to inform me.

Enjoy,
