IBO & Peter Whelan - Mr Charles the Hungarian - Presto Music

There’s a lot of music packed into this album – opera highlights, instrumental hits, concertos, sonatas and duos, all rounded off with a delightfully pompous Lully march in the faux-Turkish style. It’s exactly the kind of lively, varied programming that Vernsberg was so commercially successful with in the 1740s, and Whelan’s thoughtful reconstructive efforts are well worth a listen.
