HTGCD278 – 5060332661053

Sarah Francis performs Handel’s complete oboe concertos and sonatas with the London Harpsichord Ensemble. These interpretations are perhaps the finest on modern instruments and have received the highest accolades from national and international press alike. The booklet includes an informative essay by Handel expert, Anthony Hicks. Formerly on the Unicorn and Regis labels, the recordings are offered at budget price.

‘Miss Francis’s playing is memorable both for her appealing timbre and her sensitive, lyrical phrasing, where she varies her vibrato with the utmost subtlety. A collection which easily leads the field.’
