5.0 out of 5 stars There's an extra Organ Concerto here January 23, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
There is a fortuitous mistake in the track listings. Tracks 43 and 44 are an Organ Concerto, #10, Op. 7-4, HWV 309. Which is fortunate because otherwise we would be getting the same Concerto Grosso twice. The tempo designations are correct, but each track is two separate movements. In my digging to find out what this really is, I also discovered these Organ and Concerto Grosso recordings are from the Capriole label, which is in the same family as the excellent quality Capriccio label of which I am familiar. I'm not a big Handel fan, but this is obviously a first class collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Standard Fare Handel January 16, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Still a must have. Anyone who took the usual music appreciation 101 is familiar with most of these works. Handel is innovative and inspiring for his times. There is much to be enjoyed from this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Grief, for a buck, get it!! February 4, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
I'm not going to get into whether Handel was the greatest composer who ever lived, which is what Beethoven thought. I'm also not going to get into the quality of these performers and of these recordings, which is very good. I'm not going to discuss if these are works that are representative of Handel's finest creations, which they are. I'm just going to say for a buck, do yourself a favor and buy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start for a collection January 7, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
My taste in music is rather eclectic so acquiring a large collection of any one genre is difficult...in this case even a large collection of one composer can be difficult and expensive. Given the remarkable price of this collection (only 99 cents) I was more than a little apprehensive as to the quality of the performances. However, these are very good recordings of the master's compositions (in this case Handel) and will introduce many listeners to compositions they have never experienced. Those more familiar with Handel's works will hear interpretations by conductors and artists they may not have experienced previously.

I have purchased several of the "Must Have Masters" collections and will acquire additional composers in the future. You absolutuely cannot go wrong with these collections and the price is unbelievable.
