Handel Recorder Sonatas - Music Week

13 April 2004
Music Week
Andrew Stewart

Two of the hottest properties in early music performance join forces in this sublime programme of works by Handel. Pamela Thorby's sensual recorder playing, complete with improvised flourishes and infinitely flexible dynamic shadings, is out of the top drawer. Likewise, Richard Egarr's contributions as harpsichord accompanist in Handel's six recorder sonatas and soloist in the composer's Suite in E major lift this Linn release to the highest level of artistry.
