This week, our free download is the 6th movement, Allegro, of Handel's Concerto a due cori No. 2 in F, performed by the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. It was awarded four stars for both performance and recording in the May issue of BBC Music Magazine

Handel understood that it was necessary to entertain and occupy audiences who came to hear his concertos and he often provided musical 'appetisers' during the interludes of his larger works, including operas, oratorios and other major vocal compositions. Concerto a due cori - concertos for two wind choirs - is a prime example of this, expertly rendered by a prominent orchestra.

'Despite the widespread re-use of material, Handel's treatment of his themes is often at its most inventive,' writes George Hall. 'Notably in the largest movement here, the rollicking Allegro that ends 334 in thrilling fashion.'
