Editorial Reviews

This recording of Handel's sonatas for violin and harpsichord (or organ) uses a Baroque violin; the competition to this CD, on the Cedille label, features the spectacular Rachel Barton playing a modern violin, with harpsichord and cello as continuo. In addition, she includes an extra pair of probably-not-by-Handel sonatas (Kurosaki and Christie include two). All of that aside, this is a splendid recording of these fascinating works, stretching from Handel's early years (around 1708) to the early 1750s. Handel was, for the most part, immersed in vocal music for most of his career, and these sonatas sing; most of the violin parts are aria-like and occasionally, with the harpsichord, we could be in the presence of a vocal duet. Here, our soloists get into the music and reach for its core, with Christie's harpsichord (or organ in a pair of the sonatas) taking a more improvisational role. The playing of both soloists throughout is exceptional, and the recorded sound makes for a nice, intimate experience. --Robert Levine
