Description
Handel's little keyboard AIR is here arranged for flute, strings and continuo. Harpsichord is improvised using my own bass figuring. The flute part is also embellished (and even paraphrased in places) in accordance to performance practice principles learned through the years. I continue to experiment with reverb, EQ, instrument patches, panning and the like. Always welcome constructive criticism. Thanks for listening.

Handel
WOW!! Have you got the chops for this or WHAT?? This is really gorgeously arranged, and your harpsichord ideas are great. I'm so impressed by the perfect feel of this - the man would be proud! Great work!

Criticism
Its easy for me to find faults with pieces, but seriously, the only fault here is that I cant turn the volume up more. 10/10
