Forthcoming Recordings

Note: This is a selective list of forthcoming commercial recordings that will feature Handel's music, but release dates will vary between different territories. Some things below might be available in some parts of Europe long before they are released elsewhere. We try to avoid unsubstantiated gossip, and generally will only tell you about recordings that have been confirmed by the labels or the artists as already "in the can". There is an extensive listing of recent, new and forthcoming recordings of baroque music maintained by John Wall at NewOlde.
