Handel’s violin sonatas have been staples of the repertoire for generations, but there has been considerable confusion about their authenticity. Early editorial practice saw to it that several authentic works were published for instruments such as flute and oboe, but more recent scholarship has established that originally they were written for the violin. All the sonatas are full of Handel’s dashing bravura and his gift for expressive slow movements, providing a series of beautifully proportioned masterpieces. Ariadne Daskalakis’s recording of the Tartini Violin Concertos (8570222) was welcomed with acclaim for its ‘grace and lyrical poetry’. (MusicWeb International)

Manze’s recording on Harmonia Mundi is admired amongst original instrument performances but it isn’t as inclusive as this Naxos and interleaves the authentic with the dubious sonatas in a way that we avoid. On another Harmonia Mundi disc directed by Egarr the sonatas are played on the instruments they were published for – including flute and oboe, as well as the violin, which is something our disc rejects. Butterfield on Somm is as inclusive as us but his disc has not achieved much publicity. Modern instruments performers such as Grumiaux and Iona Brown still appeal.
