In 1981, when LP was published, Christopher Hogwood wrote:
"The fate of almost all "pops" is to be more frequently heard in adaptations, orchestrations and arrangements than in the original style and colours intended by the composers. This disc is an attempt by The Academy of Ancient Music to redress the balance a little by presenting some of the most admired masterpieces of the 18th century in their original sonorities, performed in a style and on instruments appropriate to the period."
What was written almost thirty years ago it is still truth today…
