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
Repertoire: Trio Sonatas Opus 2
Artists: Sonnerie (ensemble), Wilbert Hazelzet (flute)
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.
