Customer Review

Lately I have become enamored with conductor Karl Munchinger and his beloved Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra. While his name is not new to me (I've enjoyed his Bach: The Art of Fugue; Musical Offering for years, and have even written reviews for a couple of his other titles, Schubert: Rosamunde, complete incidental music [Australia] and Haydn: Symphonies Nos. 88 & 101), I so thoroughly enjoyed a recent purchase, Serenades for String Orchestra, that I simply had to buy other titles by this artist. Luckily there were a dozen or so cheap offerings in the Marketplace, and I snatched them all up. This Decca budget reissue in Universal's Eloquence line is simply awesome. A great selection of Handel's best work for orchestra -- "Music for the Royal Fireworks," the "Water Music" Suites and a few more treats, like "The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba" -- played magnificently and recorded impeccably. The majority of the performances are in digital from 1982, but as crisp and clean as they are, something really grabs me about the disc's last track -- the "Musette" from Concerto Grosso No. 6 recorded in 1967. It's like having a great desert after a wonderful dinner, a meal which by the way you can currently buy used in the Marketplace for a penny. Hot to Handel and hard to beat!
