Jordi Savall's exemplary performance of Handel's Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks is among the finest available on disc: refined and precise, but very big, with blood-stirring grandeur. This is just the kind of extroverted, rousing presentation that best highlights the music's open-air ceremonial function. Savall's Le Concert des Nations is essentially a chamber orchestra with double or triple winds, but the sound he elicits from the group is majestic and surprisingly powerful. The playing is crisp and the rhythmic articulation bracing, but the sound is never brash. In fact, more often than not it is seductively sensual, a heady integration of precision and supple, shapely phrasing. Handel left no authoritative edition of the score of Water Music and it has traditionally been divided into three suites, but Savall reorders the material into two suites, a decision that makes more sense in terms of key relationships and that sounds entirely satisfying. The recording was made in the spacious Chateau de Cardona in Catalonia, and the sound is warmly resonant but bright and clean. Anyone looking for a recording of these two Handel masterpieces won't go wrong with this version, which makes the music sound fresh and new even for listeners already familiar with it.

Le Concert des Nations, Jordi Savall - George Frideric Handel: Water Music; Music for the Royal Fireworks (1993)

Never has so much color, character, and attitude (in the best sense) been lavished on Handel’s well-worn, molto-recorded, and verging-on-saturation-level masterpiece known as the Water Music. This recording from 1993 that also includes the Music for the Royal Fireworks comes as close as these things can to placing us in the best seat in the house and treats us to a rare experience: the sensation of believing we’re hearing a ruggedly familiar piece for the first time. Literally bursting with energy, scintillating strings, blazing horns, and incisive winds, and never boring even for one second, these performances give you Handel at his most exciting. Jordi Savall gets the absolute most out of individual and combined instrumental timbres and literally drives the music forward on the fleet and flawless hands, lips, and fingers of his virtuosic band of musicians.

Of course, not everyone will like Savall’s interpretive decisions, especially regarding tempos in a few of the sections, for which the word “brisk” would be far too moderate a term. On the other hand, Savall’s decision to combine the G and D major suites into one group and leave the F major pieces together proves quite serviceable and, in the order he presents the individual movements (bound to be another sticking point with some listeners) makes a perfectly good case for this arrangement as very practical for modern concert hall performances and for recordings. (No one knows the original order for each suite anyway as no autograph manuscript or authentic first edition exists.) The Fireworks Music is played with the same sonic brilliance and virtuoso ensemble technique–and with the same infectious spirit. The sound is nothing less than exemplary, a tribute to Pierre Verany who oversaw the original production.
