Notes & Reviews:

This recording is, in effect, a miniature history of the English keyboard concerto from its origins to the 1770s. Indeed the first item, the orchestral version of Handel's Chaconne, is probably the earliest work for keyboard and orchestra. Other works featured in Paul Nicholson's fascinating survey include concertos by Thomas Roseingrave, Thomas Chilcot, James Nares, Philip Hayes and James Hook.

'A delightful project' (The Times)
