Notes & Reviews:

Originally released in 2008, Zefiro’s account of Handel’s Musick for the Royal Fireworks, here accompanied by the composer’s three Concerto a due cori, is one of the Italian ensemble’s most successful recordings (2009 Diapason d’or, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, etc) and remains a benchmark version of this celebrated masterwork, a royal commission whose performance was to coincide with a firework show celebrating the conclusion of the eight-year War of the Austrian Succession. ‘ one of the most enjoyable discs of Handel’s orchestral music to have come my way in a long time.’ (Gramophone)
