Handel's twelve Concerto Grossi, Opus 6, are, with Bach's Brandenburg Concerti, the crowning achievement of the Baroque concerto. Endlessly inventive in structure, rhythm, phrasing and color, they range in mood from solemn and tragic through expansive and serene to lighthearted, jocular, and playful. Here, Paul Paradise has selected five of the twelve Concerto Grossi and combined the concertino parts with the concerto grosso parts, edited the bowing and added fingerings where needed. Now these masterful works are playable by string orchestra or string quartet.
