Georg Friedric Handel (1685-1759): Trio Sonatas Op.2 & Op.5
2010 Gramophone Awards Shortlist: Baroque Instrumental
Richard Eggar and the Academy of Ancient Music continue their award-winning Handel cycle with this sparkling traversal of the Trio Sonatas op.2 and op.5: brilliantly, crafted, exciting, and (above all) fun pieces of chamber music.
‘Egarr and the musicians play dynamism and warmth which suggests that Egarr’s tenure with this band is going to be a rewarding one.’
