Handel With Care
Jazz reinterpretations of classic art songs part 1/ mathias rüegg & Lia Pale in the MuTh

For a number of years Lia Pale and mathias rüegg have been working on translating classic art songs into the language of jazz. Now they have opened a new chapter with an exploration of the Baroque period. Their subject on this occasion is the work of Georg Friedrich Handel. Arrangements by mathias rüegg bring fresh vibrancy to “Lascia ch‘io Pianga”, “Transporting Joy”, “Dear Adonis Beauty‘s Treasure”, “Ode For The Birthday Of Queen Anne” and “Piangéro”.

Selected Lieder by Georg Friedrich Handel, reimagined as jazz standards.
