“From Newton comes an equally varied “horn-fest” from Hermann Baumann, again including music by Telemann with the ASMF, who also offer support in concertos by Haydn and Pokorný.”
“Three more Newton collections, two of them featuring the elegant and always reliable ensemble I Musici, Vivaldi’s complete Opp 1-12 and Handel’s Concerti grossi, Op 6, graceful performances and quite unlike the stylised assertiveness of certain period-instrument groups.”
