||WILLIAM BOYCE - EIGHT SYMPHONIES, OP. 2 - KEVIN MALLON (conductor) - ARADIA ENSEMBLE - 0747313227822 -
Boyce was from the late Baroque period, born 25 years after Handel was born. These short symphonies are full of inventive melodies and bouncy rhythms,
and he sets a perfect balance in his use of all the instruments of the ensemble. The Aradia ensemble under Mallon play with plenty of elan and finely judged nuances. When released, this recording
was a Gramophone Editor's Choice. First rate Baroque music!
