Telarc Records is proud to announce that Boston Baroque, the acclaimed period instrument ensemble, has recorded two of Handel's classic works, Music for the Royal Fireworks and Water Music. Led by their founder and conductor Martin Pearlman, Boston Baroque adds freshness and life to Handel's popular works now available in discrete multi-channel surround SACD as well as the CD recording!
Three-time Grammy nominee Boston Baroque was the first baroque orchestra established in North America. Founded in 1973 as "Banchetto Musicale" by American conductor and harpsichordist Martin Pearlman, the ensemble has been in the vanguard of the period-instrument field for almost thirty years, and was recently described by Stereo Review as "perhaps the most outstanding period-instrument ensemble in this country."
Founder, music director and conductor Martin Pearlman is among this country's leading interpreters of baroque and classical music on both period and modern instruments. Hailed for his "fresh, buoyant interpretations" and his "vivid realizations teeming with life," Pearlman has been acclaimed for more than twenty-five years in orchestral, choral and operatic repertoire from Monteverdi to Beethoven.
