Anthony Camden, for years principal oboe of the LSO, here makes a very welcome solo appearance on disc, playing with typical point and style, using his attractively reedy tone. The regular oboe concertos are well supplemented by the Suite in G minor as edited by Camden, where he is joined by the prize-winning Julia Girdwood on the second oboe. The Otho Overture too features prominent roles for oboes in duet. Ward and the City of London Sinfonia are sympathetic accompanists using modern instruments. First-rate sound from All Saints, East Finchley.

If only for his melodic genius, Handel would have been forever acknowledged as one of history's greatest composers. These delightful sonatas for recorder provide abundant evidence to support that claim, and Marion Verbruggen's warm, resonant recorder and brilliant flute prove the perfect partners for bringing these rarely heard pieces to life.

Countless richly decorated boats following the freshly crowned King George I, and behind him, Georg Friedrich Händel with his 50 musicians and the royal household: on July 17, 1717, the first suite of Händel's famous ""Water Music"" was performed in the middle of the Thames. His majesty took such pleasure in the music of the famous Händel that he had it repeated three times, twice before and once after dinner, although every performance lasted an hour. The boats full of people who wanted to listen were not to be counted. Wassermusik is still one of Händel's most popular works. It is therefore not surprising that the Festival Orchestra Göttingen admitted it into its program for its 10th anniversary in 2016. Conductor Laurence Cummings followed this arrangement of the single movements, as can be gleaned from the recently discovered earliest sources.

Music for a royal excursion. On 17 July 1717, King George I of England went up by Water to Chelsea, and was entertain d with an excellent Consort of Musick…composed specially by the famous Handel . The fifty musicians cost the…princely sum of £150 but their hunting horns, trumpets, flutes and the rest so delighted the company that the concert was repeated three times in the course of the evening. No doubt the matchless virtuosos of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin will repeat that feat in your living room!

From bar one, I felt an assurance and naturalness about the rhythms, a clarity and tonal richness in the orchestral and vocal texture, a stylishness of phrasing and embellishment, and a sheer zest and power of dramatic presentation that add up to a totally convincing and gripping whole. […] Neumann and his team have excelled themselves, and so has Handel, and anyone who thinks 18th-century music wanting in musico-dramatic force is urged to acquire this magnificent set without delay.

…Against the competition, this new German recording rates very high. It is certainly superior to Harnoncourt's heavily cut and somewhat mannered Teldec reissue.
