Description
George Frideric Handel's 12 Concerti Grossi contain some of the finest orchestral music of the 18th century. The Opus 6 collection brims with a wealth of variety, color, and dance rhythms—Polish and pastoral dances, courtly and fast ones—as well as piquant borrowings from other composers. The combination of full orchestra with a concertino solo group of two violins and cello allows both breadth and intimacy.

"Particularly enjoyable are the buoyant fugues of Nos. 7 and 12, the languorous Musette of No. 6, the beautiful Polonaise of no. 3 and the jaunty finale of no. 1. The concertino playing is largely good, particularly Kevin Mallon's solo and linking passages in no. 11, and additional ornamentation is commendably subservient to line."—The Strad

"Handel composed two collections of concerto grossi: op. 3 and op. 6. The latter is to be considered a clear homage to the model of his predecessor Corelli, and it's music into which Handel pours the best of his art. This three-CD box set stars Toronto's Aradia Ensemble … in taut and stylish performances."—WQXR, New York
