The six recorder sonatas were composed in London, during the period 1724 - 1726, when Handel was enjoying a prolific period and huge success.
The recorder sonatas are a distillation of many of Handel's favourite melodic and rhetorical devices. As a master craftsman he was able to take ideas from large-scale works and recreate elements of oratorio, concerto, operatic aria and orchestral suites in perfectly crafted pocket book form.

The other interpreters also are noteworthy: Alice Harnoncourt, Anner Bylsma, Nokolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt and Herbert Tachezi
