CD of the week
George Friderick Handel: Water Music.
Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin.
The Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, who are performing here with a conductor, sound delightful: everthing is alive, sparkling and bubbling. The members of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin use this opportunity to display their refined sound and rhythmic flexibility. The clear and detailed recording, which we have come to expect from Harmonia Mundi, makes this a perfect CD.
