Various recordings have aired the music of Handel's contemporaries, but this one from the ensemble La Rêveuse delves deeper than others, and the players make excellent cases for the music. It is worth keeping in mind that Handel, like Bach, was on the old-fashioned side by the 1740s, and the younger musicians in his orbit, many of them immigrants, were more open to new trends. One of those was the transverse flute, sometimes known as the German flute, and the light, virtuosic concerto by Charles Weideman (a German actually named Carl Weidemann) offers an excellent example of the new music being written for it. There are pieces by the Italians Pietro Castrucci and Giuseppe Sammartini -- the older brother of Giovanni Battista Sammartini -- that carry hints of the emerging galant style. New musical breezes were also blowing from Scotland, and the pieces by James Oswald reflect this; these are the most interesting things on the album, and they're far from commonly played. Some are from a collection called The Caledonian Pocket Companion; these are transcriptions of folk tunes, some of which one might hear today during an evening out at a Scottish pub. Most unusual of all is A Sonata of Scots Tunes, a five-movement work in which the folk material is shoehorned into an Italian sonata style. This absolutely deserves wider distribution, and the album, as a whole, is fresh. Another draw are the detailed liner notes by viola da gamba player Florence Bolton; they contain lots of information, not all of it directly relevant to the music at hand, but all of interest to lovers of the period (maybe music for the Aeolian harp or the violetta marina will be coming up on subsequent releases). The church sound is wrong, but this is apparently the first in a series of English music from these fine musicians, and one looks forward to more.
