Sunday morning music


Fans of baroque music will enjoy this morning’s offering.  A reader sent me the link to the video below.  It’s over 4 hours of concerti by Dutch composers from the 18th century, including many of whom I’d never heard before.  They include Anton Wilhelm Solnitz, Albertus Groneman, Conrad Friedrich Hurlebusch, Johann Christian Schickhardt, Pieter Hellendaal, Unico Wilhelm van Wassenaer and Willem de Fesch.  The orchestra is the Combattimento Consort Amsterdam, conducted by Jan Willem de Vriend, and Musica Ad Rhenem, led by Jed Wentz.  The collection is available from Brilliant Classics, who appear to have an extensive catalog of classical music releases.  I must spend some time going through their list.

For a full list of the works included in this recording and their timestamps, see the video’s YouTube page.

Mellow, relaxing music.  Perfect for a quiet Sunday morning.
