Bought in February 2017.
Recording dates: October 2006.
Recording venue: Studio Gärtnerstraße, Berlin-Lankwitz, Germany.
Recording engineer: Henri Thaon.
Running time: 58:54.
Classical relevance: For those that like the instrument a good acquisition.
Compositions for recorder, cello and Harpsichord.
I knew some of the music, but I never heard anything by this ensemble. But you do not have to have any worries about the artistic part. It is well played and performed. Dedicated musicians play popular music of it's time. It does not demand a huge amount of concentration to enjoy what's on offer. Simply but effective music to leisure away the time in a pleasant way. There are solo pieces for Harpsichord by Daniel Purcell which are very good, and some pieces by Henry Purcell for Recorder and BC. A fine CD to start the listening day with.
The recording is excellent, and apart from a few moments of uneasiness with the high pitch of the recorder all is okay.
