Notes and Editorial Reviews

Academy of Ancient Music/Christopher Hogwood. (Review of original CD issue on Oiseau-Lyre 417834-2)

Hogwood’s accounts are stylish and well recorded, though not quite so bracing in their effect. Both he and Gardiner have the same soloist in the B minor Suite, Lisa Beznosiuk, today’s leading exponent of the Baroque flute. Hers is an appealingly light and delicate tone, one that gives her an almost ghostlike presence in the tuttis. But she is able to hold her own in the solo passages, despite the difficulty of fingering, and in both accounts her playing is nicely ornamented, not overly affected. On the Erato disc she is not credited anywhere except in general roster of English Baroque Soloists, a lamentable oversight. – Ted
