Product description

Product Description

The first half of Handel's Concerto Grossi Op. 6 Nos. 1 - 6 marked Boston Baroque's debut release with Telarc in 1992. American Record Guide hailed the debut recording as "...full of imagination and resourcefulness, bringing pungent new personality to these pieces." Gramophone wrote "...meticulously prepared...enlivened by spirited and warmly coloured playing. I shall look forward to the sequel." And CD Review welcomed Boston Baroque as "a world class member of the original instruments club."

In the fall of 1739, immediately after finishing his Ode for St. Cecilia's Day, Handel began composing twelve concerti grossi, completing the entire set within the astonishing space of one month. The dates of completion written at the ends of the concertos range from September 29 to October 30, meaning that Handel composed on average one concerto every two-and-a-half to three days.

Martin Pearlman is one of the US's leading interpreters of Baroque and Classical music on both period and modern instruments. Hailed for his "fresh, buoyant interpretations," and his "vivid realizations teeming with life," Pearlman has been acclaimed for more than thirty years in the orchestral, choral, and operatic repertoire from Monteverdi to Beethoven. Boston Baroque is the resident professional ensemble for Boston University's Historical Performance Program.
