Handel’s Concerti Grossi contain some of the finest orchestral music of the eighteenth century. The Op. 6
collection brims with a wealth of variety, colour, and dance rhythms – Polish and Pastoral dances, courtly
and fast ones – and Handel’s customary self-borrowings and indeed borrowings from other composers.
The combination of full orchestra with a concertino solo group of two violins and cello allows both breadth
and intimacy, producing concertos in the fullest sense. On this recording Kevin Mallon incorporates the
later oboe parts for Concertos Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 6, using them as a model for most of the other concertos.
When the oboes are silent, flutes or recorders are added, in line with eighteenth-century practice.
