Freiburg Baroque Orchestra, conducted by René Jacobs (Harmonia Mundi France; three CD's) Mr. Jacobs's output is so prolific you could almost believe he's improvising the music as he goes; indeed, opening up Handel to improvisation is one reason his recordings bring the composer alive. This performance is especially fine, with a strong cast (including Vivica Genaux in the title role) and vital playing.
