5.0 out of 5 stars First rate performance, 4 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Handel: Water Music (Audio CD)
The English Concert's performance of the two suites of Water Music are undoubtably superior to anything played for the entertainment of George I as he floated down the Thames on that summer evening in 1717. Strings are vibrato-free, woodwind more mellow and brass less strident than in modern-instrument performances; the result is uncontrived and pleasant on the ear. Handel makes much play of the alternations between the instrumental groups, an aspect which Trevor Pinnock's astute direction helps to convey. Pinnock draws crisp, energetic playing and several movements come across with a delightful freshness.
