Handel: Trio Sonatas
The Brook Street Band
The Brook Street Band has easily earned its reputation as "the smartest new baroque band around (The Times, London). Among today's most notable Handel specialists, the all-girl group follow their ear-opening recording debut, the world-premiere chamber version of Handel's 'Oxford' Water Music (AV 0028) which earned the ensemble an Editor's Choice from Gramophone, and a sparkling rendition of the Op. 5 Trio Sonatas (AV 2068), with the composer's other great set of Trio Sonatas, Op. 2. An utterly memorable collection of works that features Handel's imaginative "re-heating" of his own popular tunes, the recording once again brings forth the Band's sheer pleasure in sharing the composer's wonderful music.
