5.0 out of 5 stars Boyce Symphonies 25 May 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These works are classics of the English baroque by one of the great names of the 18th century. Boyce wrote for many occasions, but the world of public entertainment is to the fore here. The works are not classical (Haydn- and Mozart-type) symphonies at all. They generally follow a fast, slow fast format and have a simple structure. This is not deep music, but it is definitely rewarding. There are varied orchestrations and some fantastic movements featuring trumpets and drums. Few people could fail to enjoy this music.

As always, Pinnock and his band give lively and well-articulated performances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb recording! 3 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
When you hear these 8 symphonies you will notice that William Boyce (1711-1779) is a very great and enjoyable english baroque and rococo composer. Try listen to the "symphony no. 8 in D minor" especially the last movement and you will think: How great the music was in the 18th-century. The outstanding conductor Trevor Pinnock and his authentic instruments ensemble The English Concert gives a first-class, lively and superb performance. This cd is highly recommendable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Music while you work 21 Mar 2011
By PatB
Format:Audio CD
These symphonies are from the no-nonsense school of English composition, dating from a time when Italian music (and Italian everything else) was venerated out of all proportion to its actual merits. To be an English composer in those days you had to be humble. Boyce's music is supremely functional and unpretentious. It's the kind of music a minimalist orchestra hired for the evening to entertain the company at Vauxhall Gardens would have had in their repertoire. The movements making up these symphonies don't outstay their welcome. They are all short and sweet, averagely under 3 minutes, but full of bright melody and springy rhythms, perfect for pleasing the ear of people who are moving around and chatting rather than sitting and listening intently. It's the kind of music I like to have on when I'm working on DIY projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal performances of these underrated works 1 Jan 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Boyce's symphonies are a ragbag of overtures he reissued and renamed, but the sheer quality of the music they contain defies criticism. Pinnock's performances bring out the full range of the music, and the orchestral playing shows how sweetperiod instruments can sound. A lovely disc.
