5.0 out of 5 stars Baroque Classics 16 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's difficult to condense an entire musical period into a single disc compilation, but hyperion here have done very well. The disc showcases 16 different composers and is therefore very good if you want a comprehensive introduction to the Baroque. All music here is performed by The Brandenburg Consort conducted by Roy Goodman.
I decided to buy this after listening to Roy Goodman's Bachs Orchestral Suites, and it is a very good overview of the Baroque period. As I've come to expect, each piece is played very well, and the recordings are of good quality.
Amazon doesn't seem to provide a track listing for this, so here you go. Hope this is of some use

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique selection of Great Baroque classics 25 Jan 2013
By Uenna TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great collection of many all time favourite baroque classics. The Baroque is a peculiar era and with so many favourites to choose from it is often difficult to get a good collection. This Hyperion CD as the list of the contest shows is one of the best comprehensive selection of Baroque favourites. There are also some great discoveries of rare gems hidden amongst the favourites. I like this collection and gladly recommend it.
