Suite No. 1 In F Major, HWV 348.

Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Suffice it to say the Water Music is played with exquisite smoothness while the Fireworks Music is loaded with punch and percussion. The coupling of the two and the Naxos price make this album almost impossible to beat.

Album title: Handel. Works: Water Music; Music for the Royal Fireworks. This bargain disc brings together Handel’s two best-known orchestral works, both conceived for open-air performance and both containing a never-ending succession of strongly profiled and immediately memorable numbers

Much has been made of the fast speeds chosen for this Canadian period instrument ensemble’s recording of Handel’s Water Music and Fireworks suites. True, it proceeds at a fair lick, but the entire album is still two minutes less than a 1998 BMG recording by Nicholas McGegan and the humble, non-specialist Scottish Chamber Orchestra, who play with more dynamic light and shade, antiphonal strings awareness and exaggerated rhythms than the Aradia Ensemble.
