Album Summary

>Handel, George Frideric : Concerti Grossi (12), Op. 6, HWV 319-330
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Multi award-winning period performance ensemble il giardino armonico, led by the charismatic and inspiring giovanni antonini, make their first appearance on the newly invigorated l'oiseau lyre label with a wonderful new recording of handel's 12 concerti grossi op. 6 to mark the composer's anniversary year (2009). Handel's concerti grossi, op. 6 are one of the pillars of baroque orchestral music. Il giardino armonico takes a characteristically dramatic and instinctively italian view of the music (handel did after all hone his compositional skills in italy before settling in england). The group hopes to reclaim handel for italy by exploring some of the unique qualities that their native temperament can bring to the music.

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
One can overlook a few of Il Giardino Armonico's eccentricities to listen to some generally intoxicating performances of Handel's most masterful instrumental compositions. Much of the credit for the intricate passagework and dynamic excitement must be given to fiddler Enrico Onofri, whose playing sparkles with articulate energy. The plunging interplay between concertino and ripieno groups is exhilarating.

The Polonaise in No 3 is astonishingly robust, with its droning bass thrashed out; it certainly brings out the daring brilliance of Handel's musical imagination, though it seems rather short on the pastoral charm that the composer surely intended. The opening Largo and Allegro of No 5 possess panache and the opening of No 10 is tautly dramatic, but one misses the airy wit that such music may also convey.

Il Giardino Armonico's playing is never clumsy but incisive muscular approaches in contrapuntal movements seem overly severe. It is possible to find a more measured elegance and shapely sentimentality in Handel's music, but there is plenty of highly spiced food for thought served by Il Giardino Armonico.
