#12 in the Official UK Classical Artist Chart - 11th August 2017 

5 stars 'Baroque music gem: The performances by Ensemble Marsyas...are consistently bracing.' The Irish Times 

4 stars '...it’s a rich insight, played with great style and charisma.' The Guardian

Disc of the Week: 'Engaging, entertaining, sensitive and remarkably assured, it will appeal to all lovers of Baroque music. Altogether a triumphant disc.' Europadisc

 

Horn soloists Alec Frank-Gemmill and Joseph Walters take centre stage in Handel’s Concerto for French horns, exemplifying the extraordinary vogue for horn music at this time. Timpanist Alan Emslie joins them for Barsanti’s Concerti grossi Op. 3, an unusual concertino comprising timpani and natural horns.

Barsanti’s four ‘Old Scots Tunes’, notable as one of the first examples of Scottish Traditional music to be faithfully transcribed, introduces fiddle player Colin Scobie. Completing the programme is Handel’s aria ‘Sta nell’Ircana’ from Alcina, featuring mezzo-soprano Emilie Renard, and the March for Wind Band, HWV 346.

The recording, which will be launched at the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival, is a fine addition to the group’s discography.
