Handel Recorder Sonatas - The Independent

19 April 2004
The Independent
Rob Cowan

Finally, a superb recital of Handel recorder sonatas by Pamela Thorby seems set to become a benchmark. Thorby's plaintively expressive tone is underpinned by Richard Egarr's boisterous handling of the harpsichord or organ parts. In addition to the six recorder sonatas, Egarr throws in Handel's E major solo harpsichord suite with its once-ubiquitous "Harmonious Blacksmith" theme-with-variations finale.
