Händel Concerti grossi op. 6

Combattimento Consort Amsterdam / Jan Willem de Vriend

Challenge Classics CC 72570 [3SACDs]

The latest, and arguably the best, recording of these twelve concerti grossi for those who have time to listen and compare such intégrales. They will, I guess, be mainly professionals?

Presentation and expert musicological analyses are fine, as is the quality of the recording and the maintained energy of performances on, of course, authentic baroque instruments led from the violin.

We have enjoyed a couple of them before moving on to other repertoire...
