Handel – Concerti Grossi Op. 6 part 2 is Scherzo’s Album of the Month

“With this recording, a new reference for this emblematic opus has finally been accomplished.”

“Handel – Concerti Grossi Op.6 – part 2” performed by the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin  and Bernhard Forck is Scherzo‘s Album of the Month – April Edition! Read a glimpse of the review below!

“This second recording proves once more the virtues of an interpretation that can be considered, without any doubt, exemplary, and allows the listener to enjoy the velvety sound of the orchestra, to be affected by the players’ energy, and seduced by the optimism of the quick movements, or by the poetry of the slow ones. It is also another occasion to acknowledge the virtuosity of Bernhard Forck, who figures as concertmaster, as well as Dörte Wetzel, and to witness the effectiveness of the basso continuo and the brilliant role fulfilled in it by Andalusian lute player Miguel Rincón. And, to conclude, an excellent sound is realized, clear and precise, allowing listeners to appreciate all the details.”
