Notes & Reviews:

Handel's two sets of concertos are one of the pinnacles of the Baroque concerto grosso, displaying a wealth of musical invention and enormous variety of instrumental sonorities. These concertos are core repertory for the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Neville Marriner and these pioneering recordings make a welcome return to the catalogue in newly remastered transfers.

Penguin Guide
"[On Op. 3] Marriner's [Argo] set remains fully competitive for musical scholarship and, what is even more to the point, for musical expressiveness and spontaneity ... the Academy was in peak form when this recording was made and the sound is very well balanced and vivid.
