Notes & Reviews:

Handel wrote the twenty sonatas on this recording for the professional musicians of his London opera orchestra. They demand considerable skill and stamina both from the soloist and the continuo. Handel keeps the elements of display and purely musical argument in admirable balance in these works. Violinist Elizabeth Wallfisch is joined by a superb group of soloists on this specially priced set.

BBC Music Magazine
The performances in this attractive set are further distinguished by an interpretive sponaneity that invariably brings the music to life.
