This is the reissue of an Erato CD released in 1985. See my review under the original issue: Handel:Ballet Music. The music, excerpted from Alcina and the earlier Il Pastor Fido (Terpsichore is the one-act opera-ballet Haendel added as an opening to the much-revised revival of 1734), is as good as anything Haendel ever wrote (especially the overture and ballet music from Alcina) and the English Baroque Soloists under Gardiner play with fine tone and ensemble and genuine Haendelian zest. The only drawback is the short TT of 47:23, and no subsequent reissue (there is also Handel: Alcina / Terpsichore / Il Pastor Fido, which at the time of writing is sold for much cheaper, and a 6-CD box with a number of HAendel Erato Gardiner recordings, Handel: L'Allegro, il Penseroso ed il Moderato; Tamerlano; Ballet Music From Alcina, Terpischore & Il Pastor Fido / Gardiner (6CDs)) has complemented the original recording with an adequate filler. So find it cheap.
