Notes & Reviews:

This recording of recorder sonatas by Handel and an 18th c. transcription of the Royal Fireworks Suite is the work of three Melbournians who have made important contributions to early music performance in Australia for over thirty years. Published By John Walsh c. 1750, this is the only recording of the adaptation of the Fireworks Music (originally for flute, violin or harpsichord) in this arrangement. All instruments are faithful reproductions of authentic originals, historically accurate, carefully researched and tuned to a version of period temperament, giving each key its own character.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
This is apparently the first recording of this version, and it is certainly interesting to hear what Walsh was able to accomplish in distilling the essence of Handel's massive ensemble down to its essential musical elements. It is fascinating. The repertoire chosen is interesting, the performance is at best acceptable.
