Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Handel’s Op. 3 set of Concerti grossi are given exceptionally spirited performances here, benefiting from the pungent but also plangently expressive tone of the period instruments. The slow movements are beautifully realised, the fast ones invigorating, with extremely brisk tempi and trenchant, even fierce, articulation."
-- Barry Millington, BBC Music Magazine
