Some of the greatest works of the Baroque era are brought together on this new release covering all the best known composers from Albinoni to Vivaldi.
From the vigour of Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba to the melancholy of Albinoni’s Adagio, by way of Pachelbel’s famous Canon and Gigue and Bach’s Air from his Third Suite, this is a collection that no lover of Baroque music will want to be without.
All the works are performed by Naxos’ resident Baroque specialists, the Cologne Chamber Orchestra under Helmut Muller-Bruhl who have won many awards and accolades including several Gramophone Editor’s Choices.
