It's incredible that Handel wrote these 12 concertos, his most highly regarded instrumental music, in just one month - a total of 157 minutes of music as performed by the Handel & Haydn Society. Handel didn't write all of this music completely from scratch though: he borrowed here and there from his own works, including three of his organ concertos, as well as quoted from other composers. An astute listener might notice this, but it was Handel's genius to adapt material so cleverly that it all sounds completely fresh.

The Handel & Haydn Society is a Boston-based period instrument orchestra that has a rich history in the performance of early and classical music (it was founded in 1815). Christopher Hogwood was its Artistic Director from 1986-2001, so these recordings (1991-1992) are the product of a long relationship between conductor and orchestra. Here's what Gramophone had to say about these performances: "The Handel & Haydn Society's alert enthusiasm is tangible throughout these polished and stylish readings, originally recorded by Decca's much lamented early-music division L'Oiseau-Lyre. The sound is less dry than Andrew Manze's energised and supple performances, yet textures are more transparent than the expressive richness of Trevor Pinnock's excellent recordings. Hogwood combines the best of both worlds and directs with natural sensitivity; his tastefully emphasised suspensions and relaxed shaping of cadences are consistently perfect. I hesitate to proclaim this the finest Op 6 on disc but there is ample here to satisfy the fussiest Handelians."

The Handel & Haydn Society don't seem to record very much which is all the more reason to acquire this worthy set of opus 6. The sound is very good, however, for interested parties there is also a remastered set available that includes the opus 3 concertos (search "Handel & Haydn Society").

Highly recommended!

This is a great rendition of Handel's often played Concerti Grossi. How did the guy come up with so many catchy melodies? I'm reading a biography of Handel by the very conductor on the CD. Handel was not the stodgy looking fellow we always see in his portraits. He rocked. And he was a bit of a superstar in London in the 1700s. So, in summery, buy the book and the CD. If you're not a Handel fan, you soon will be.

I've wanted a version of the Handel works for a while, but wasn't sure which would satisfy me. I finally chose the Hogwood effort based in part on the Amazon ratings and am totally satisfied with my choice. Top quality sound and performance. Highly recommended.

Fabulous CD. Anything directed by Christopher Hogwood is bound to be good, and this is no exception. A "must" for your music library.
