This spirited performance of Handel's Sinfonia or Saul is beautifully played by the Academy of Ancient Music, one Britain's foremost period instrument orchestras. Performing only on original instruments or flawless modern replicas, the Academy for Ancient Music perfectly capture the lively, expressive warmth that Handel's eighteenth-century audiences would have enjoyed, whilst still enjoying a few expertly imaginative twists and turns.

'A striking success... Expertly led by harpsichordist Richard Egarr, and superbly played, it programmes an attractive selection of symphonies by five 18th-century composers to illustrate the title 'Birth of the symphony'. The contents prove enjoyable both in sequence and as historical display case.' BBC Music Magazine 

'Disc of the Week' BBC Radio 3 ‘CD Review'

‘Standards are crisp, spirited, full of imaginative detail with fizzing harpsichord contributions from the AAM's music director, Richard Egarr.' The Guardian
