Handel Variations is a collection of Stadtfeld's very own favorite works by Handel, all newly arranged for and played on the piano. Stadtfeld himself says "I must confess that I find it hard to listen to a whole Handel opera or oratorio in large numbers. Nevertheless, I am convinced that individual "taken out" arias can unfold their effect and aura without their original emotional background. Maybe especially on the piano, which basically remains an abstract instrument." The album contains Handel's most famous melodies and hit arias such as "Lascia ch'io pianga" and "Ombra mai fu" as well as the famous "Sarabande" in new and unique piano versions and many more beautiful melodies
