Notes and Editorial Reviews

New London Consort/Philip Pickett. Oiseau Lyre 452 000-2 [2 CDs; with orchestral selections from other works]

The 1995 recording from Pickett and the New London Consort offers thoughtful and illuminating performances of the suites, suavely played by an assembly of the world’s finest period-instrumentalists. Pickett challenges some of the assumptions that have held sway among specialists, particularly with regard to the tempos at which dances such as the bourrée and gavotte should be taken – slower in the case of the former, faster in the latter. He also assigns just a single string instrument to each part, thereby shifting the tonal balance toward the woodwinds and, in Suites Nos. 3 and 4, the trumpets. A first-rate
Read more recording allows these refinements to be properly savored. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection. Read less
