He could also have conveyed something more of the grandeur and spaciousness of the last dateable sonata by Handel, that in D, HWV, but otherwise Holloway is attentive to the shape and structure of musical phrases. Particularly in the HWV Sonata, there is a witty, even furtive, quality in the interpretation, followed by a fuller, more sonorous tone in the C minor Sonata HWV The recorder sonatas on the last disc are divided between Philip Pickett and Rachel Beckett, though individual attributions are not made.
Only occasionally do the performers fail to live up to such acuity elsewhere, for example in the opening movement of HWV where the phrases seem curt and could be shaded more subtly. There is pleasing variety from the different combinations of instrumentalists utilised in the Opus 2 trio sonatas, though the performances tend to be efficient rather than inspired.
Holloway and Micaela Comberti sound more radiant and silvery in the Opus 5 sonatas, which come over with alacrity, such as the opening movement of No. The slow chromatic coda of the second movement of No.
Other recordings of the trio sonatas since these have instilled more interpretative vigour and imagination, or simply taken more risks with the music, for example the Academy of Ancient Music, or the Brook Street Band. The latter have also made a delectable follow-up disc of the same miscellaneous trio sonatas which feature on the fifth disc of this CRD set. For those interested in textural matters, this collection remains competitive, since the only other such set by the Academy Chamber Ensemble on Philips is not readily available any more, and so for the time being this will remain a highly competitive issue for collectors.
Some sonatas also exist in alternative versions, and the various original editions of the Opus 1 collection contained a slightly different series from each other, some of which we now know to be almost certainly spurious.
