Review

Too many people run a mile when they read "performed on authentic instruments". Trevor Pinnock and The English Concert have done much to counter this reaction and along the way have produced some beautiful sounds which the distortion-free CD process captures explicitly. Here we are given Nos. 1-4 of the Op. 6 Concerti grossi and notwithstanding my own selective appreciation of Handel's prolific output I must admit to being swayed by the competence of this CD, for it is successful in its appeal at several levels and the concertos now take on new life and brilliance in these settings.

George Frideric Handel (23 February 1685 (O.S.) [(N.S.) 5 March] – 14 April 1759) was a German-born, British Baroque composer who spent the bulk of his career in London, becoming well known for his operas, oratorios, anthems, and organ concertos. He is regarded as one of the greatest composers of the Baroque era, with extremely popular works such as Water Music, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Messiah. His music was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.
