John Holloway (violin), Jaap ter Linden (cello) and Lars Ulrik Mortensen (harpsichord) are among the most highly respected Baroque musicians. They have performed together for many years, winning awards for their work as a trio and as individuals.

A London Concert features music by composers Handel, Babell, Arne, Geminiani, Festing and Veracini. This disc provides a unique opportunity to listen to a varied programme of the kind that would have been frequently attended by concert-goers in the 1700s. This thoughtful compilation enables the listener to hear some of Handel's less frequently recorded music, together with rarely heard works by his contemporaries.

The disc showcases not only the music but also the trio's talent as musicians. There is a joyous feel to the music, a combination of the pieces chosen and the relish with which the trio plays.
