Jonathan Freeman-Attwood - Handel for Trumpet - Gramophone

For a moment of time-standing-still loveliness, head to the opening Larghetto from Sonata No 3 in E flat major - formerly the organ concerto The Cuckoo and the Nightingale in F - to enjoy amiably poised piano grace, concluding on a gently profound ritardando, before a deliciously delicate and light-of-touch, cuckooing Allegro, its dialogue and voicing beautifully realised, with Freeman-Attwood making nimble work of the rapid passagework and ornamentations.
