5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Wait July 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Founded by Martin Pearlman in 1973, Boston Baroque is the first permanent Baroque orchestra in the U.S. It is also the resident ensemble for Boston University's Historical Performance Program. Boston Baroque's first Telarc recording, issued in 1992, included the first six concertos of Handel's Opus 6 Handel: Concerti Grossi, Op. 6, Nos. 1-6. Fifteen years later Telarc has finally recorded and released the remaining half dozen.

Boston Baroque's recording of the Concerti Grossi Nos. 1-6 was excellent, and Nos. 7-12 are better still. The strings are even more polished (Pearlman doesn't double the string parts with woodwinds, as some other conductors do), and the recorded sound (thanks to DSD) is even more lifelike. Boston Baroque's playing has none of the mannerisms that sometimes mar historically informed performances; it combines the energy and enthusiasm of a period band with the weight and richness of a modern ensemble.

The Grand Concertos (as they were called in English) could be described as Handel's greatest hits. As was his practice, Handel borrowed freely from other of his works (and from other composers). Sometimes the concertos provided additional entertainment between sections of Handel's oratorios. They deservedly remain among Handel's most popular works. Except for Messiah, there is no better place to make Handel's acquaintance than the concerti of Opus 6, and there are no better recordings than these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lively performances on period instruments April 13, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
Pearlman gave us the first six of the opus some years earlier, and critics and the public were kind to them. Although I have not heard the earlier set, I expect they are much the same as these, because what's not to like. The performances are lively in the outer movements and often serenely introspective in the Largos and Adagios. If anything, the contrasts may appear perhaps too pronounced, but I enjoyed the intensified effect. On period instruments we don't get quite as imposing an effect as we do with some performances on modern instruments, but Pearlman and his players are certainly graceful and refined, which helps make up for any lack of outright weightiness. Warm, resonant, mellow sound complement the performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome addition to BB's Part 1 February 24, 2013
By D.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Have enjoyed Boston Baroque's Part 1 if the opus 6 "Grossi" for some time and now Part 2 has arrived. The level of musicianship is quite good and BB plays period instruments. Own them both and play them often...fine renditions of Mr. Handel's lovingly conceived and crafted handiwork. Also, the recording fidelity quality is quite decent. Even when played on conventional mono pole loudspeakers the recording "breathes" nicely.
Kudos to Telarc, the recording engineer, BB, Mr. Pearlman, (and GFH). Yowza!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! December 23, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Every time one of these concertos comes up while I'm listening on Pandora, I look and see that it is Handel from this compilation, I finally decided to purchase it. It's lovely to listen to and different from other Handel selections that I enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handel Concerti Grossi February 9, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My old "music appreciation" text from college listed Handel's concerti grossi as equal to the best baroque music ever written. I'm not sure I'd totally agree but it is very nice to listen to.
