Australian Brandenburg Orchestra

Australia's first and finest period-instrument orchestra, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra perform regularly to sell-out audiences around Australia and overseas.

Their vibrant concerts combine historical integrity with electrifying virtuosity and a passion for beauty. On this magnificent new recording, they turn their remarkable talent to the music of Handel, whose concerti grossi - concertos for a small group of soloists, rather than a single player - provide the perfect vehicle for the brilliance and artistry of this unique ensemble.

Recorded over 4 years and released in 2009, this collection of the complete Opus 6 Concerto Grossi is our triumphant homage to one of the towering musical talents of the baroque – George Frederick Handel.
