Label: Challenge Classics
Description: Recorded in 2006 but only released now, this is the sort of fun release that period instruments amplify - and show you how far we’ve come from the DG Archiv days of Edward Melkus and his ensemble. And, oddly, there’s no other recording of the “Peasant Wedding” available and none of the Cassation on period instruments. Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra; Ton Koopman.
