About

“The resulting sound is splendid, helped along by judicious editing the brass and percussion do often kindle a glorious blaze which is caught beautifully by the recording, an extravaganza which can scarcely fail to become a collectors’ piece.” - Penguin Guide (Fireworks Music)

“chief praise to Mr. Mackerras for uncovering this splendid Concerto for two wind bands - a transcription of some of Handel's arrangements from oratorio and organ concertos - I expect to see it widely performed.” - Penguin Guide (Concerto a due Cori)

“orchestral playing throughout is quite outstanding: the strings wonderfully expressive, the horns excel. A splendid bargain.” - Penguin Guide (Water Music)

Time 78:19, ADD, 1959/74
