Händel: Water music & Music for the royal fireworks
• Water music
• Music for the royal fireworks
Le concert spirituel
Conducted by Hervé Niquet

One of the most enjoyable and vivacious interpretations I’ve ever heard. "Authnentic" performances can sometimes be downright off-putting – not this one. Enjoy :-).

  1. Thank you so much for bringing my attention to this superb performance. It’s really brassy, buzzy, and superbly committed – and then Niquet brings on the massed recorders towards the end for a sonority that almost had me crying into my Earl Grey.

    I’m enjoying your Vivaldi series too.
