These are some of his best tunes, with pieces such as the Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, selections from the Royal Fireworks, Largo from Xerxes and selections from his Water Music Suite. Recorded by the New York City-based Lumiere String Quartet with guest artists Sato Moughalian on Flute and Eileen Bedlington on Trumpet, you won’t be disappointed with both the quality and selection on this wonderful disc.
