Description: You may find it odd having the current artistic director of the Academy of Ancient Music recording Stokie arrangements of baroque music. You may find it even more odd to find him doing his own Stokie impressions on Handel and Ockeghem. But Egarr loves the emotionalism and heart-on-sleeve showmanship of the old arm-waver and it comes out in this recording which we offer for all enthusiasts of the Stokowsky transcription. Brussels Philharmonic; Richard Egarr.
