A very enjoyable recording of three popular baroque concertos. All the pieces are full of fun and one feels good after listening to them. The performances are excellent and, with one exception, the technical side is excellent as well. The notes with the CD explain why recording harpsichord is difficult - if the volume is loud enough to compete with the orchestra the mechanical noise from the instrument is intrusive. So in the keyboard concerto the harpsichord solos seem too quiet and out of balance with the orchestra. A better balance is achieved if a piano plays the keyboard role, but that would not be original and I have not found a CD that has this alongside the oboe and trumpet concertos. So, good value, but I hope the technicians are looking for ways of making better recordings of harpsichord concertos.

I have long been a fan of Trevor Pinnock's approach to music-making, and this recording does not disappoint. As well an immaculate rendition of the famous Trumpet Concerto, the CD includes a delightful oboe concerto, plus a harpschord concerto that should (as energetically played here by Mr. Pinnock) dispel any notions of this being a dull instrument.

Overall, a very pleasant listen.
