2: Italian Opera in London
Donald Macleod and Christopher Hogwood chart Handel's contributions to the growth of Italian opera in London. Rinaldo,
Handel's first successful opera there, came into being through Handel's friendshipwith Aaron Hill, who was running the Queen's Theatre in the Haymarket. Hill knew, through his struggles to make the box office balance, what a difficult task it was to find music that London audiences would accept. He gave Handel his own English version of a play by Giacomo Rossi , and within two weeks Handel had written Rinaldo and begun his operatic career in London.

Aconcert by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under its chief conductor Leonard Slatkin , recorded on Sunday night at the Barbican Centre, London. Alongside Korngold's romantic violin concerto are Sibelius's nationalistic second symphony and the European premiere of a BBC commission from the young British composer Joseph Phibbs. In Camera explores musical perspective: the different types of smaller ensembles created within the orchestra, and orchestral foreground and background. Phibbs was also influenced by the many rich and varied landscapes he saw during his recent studies in the USA.
