Baroque Recorder Concertos - Pamela Thorby - Early Music Review

01 July 2002
Early Music Review
Clifford Bartlett

It is good to hear Pamela Thorby in a programme where one doesn't have to wonder why she isn't playing a violin. All the pieces here are genuine recorder concertos; RV443 is transposed, but with the authority of the composer. Me pre-auditory fear that five recorder concertos on the trot would be about three too many was not fulfilled and I can recommend this highly.

The backing group (Monica Huggett, Emilia Benjamin, the McGillivray sisters, Sarah Groser and Matthew Halls) is as good as you can get and this is an entirely enjoyable recording.
