Infectious, celebratory performances of Handel. Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 28 October 2013.
The all-girl Brook Street Band have developed a solid reputation for their sunny, energetic performances of great music from the Baroque repertoire.
Following on from their critically acclaimed debut album - the world-premiere chamber version of Handel’s ‘Oxford’ Water Music - the Band turns its attention to Handel's great set of Trio Sonatas, Op. 2 in which the composer revisits and reworks some of his own popular tunes.
Expect sparkling renditions which communicate the Brook Street Band's sheer pleasure in Handel's music.
