Founded in Milan in 2008, the Italian Baroque specialist ensemble made its successful Wigmore debut in 2016. Handel’s earliest setting of the story of Acis, Galatea and Polyphemus was composed for Naples in June 1708, during his vitally important Italian period, when the style to which his music would largely adhere for the remainder of his career was essentially formed.
