Handel’s violin sonatas have been staples of the repertoire for generations, but there has been considerable confusion about their authenticity. Early editorial practice saw to it that several authentic works were published for instruments such as flute and oboe, but more recent scholarship has established that originally they were written for the violin. All the sonatas are full of Handel’s dashing bravura and his gift for expressive slow movements, providing a series of beautifully proportioned masterpieces. Ariadne Daskalakis’s recording of the Tartini Violin Concertos (8.570222) was welcomed with acclaim for its ‘grace and lyrical poetry’. (MusicWeb International)

Review By Giv Cornfield, PhD,The New Recordings, Cliffs Classics,November 2011

Ariadne Daskalakis plays a soft-spoken baroque violin in this complete version of all of Handel’s sonatas specifically designated for performance on violin—though some of these works are perhaps better known in versions for recorder and/or flute, or oboe. Rainer Zipperling provides string continuo on gamba and baroque cello, and Gerald Hambitzer is the harspichordist. The playing is exemplary, tender and exuberant by turn.
