Sonnerie and Hazelzet have dazzling skill

Leading Baroque violinist Monica Huggett and her musical ensemble Sonnerie perform the six Trio Sonatas of Handel's Opus 2

Composer: Handel
Repertoire: Trio Sonatas Opus 2
Artists: Sonnerie (ensemble), Wilbert Hazelzet (flute)
Rating: 5/5 
Genre: Instrumental
Label: Avie AV 0033

The slow movements tantalise as they breed impatience for the dancing quicks. The counterpoint is excited conversation and Monica Huggett is countered by Emilia Benjamin’s second fiddle. Matthew Halls’ keyboards are a discreet continuo. Cool Baroque flautist Wilbert Hazelzet makes a guest appearance in the B minor. Sing with No.2, sigh with No.6. A winner.
