Handel: Concerto Grosso in A major, Op 6, No 11 (17:26)
Aradia Ensemble / Kevin Mallon
Handel’s Concerti Grossi contain some of the finest orchestral music of the 18th century. The Op 6 collection brims with a wealth of variety, color and dance rhythms. The combination of full orchestra with a concertino solo group allows for both breadth and intimacy, producing concertos in the fullest sense.
