William Boyce: 8 Symphonies

My CD recommendation this week is William Boyce's 8 Symphonies featuring The English Concert and directed by Trevor Pinnock.  Check out this review from Amazon.

"When you hear these 8 symphonies you will notice that William Boyce (1711-1779) is a very great and enjoyable English baroque and rococo composer. Try listening to the "Symphony No. 8 in D minor" especially the last movement and you will think: How great the music was in the 18th-century. The outstanding conductor Trevor Pinnock and his authentic instruments ensemble The English Concert gives a first-class, lively and superb performance. This CD is highly recommendable."

I certainly agree with the reviewer.  One of my favorites of the eight symphonies is number one.
