Recordings of Christopher Hogwood


Christopher Hogwood, pioneer of the original-instrument, authentic-performing-style movement, passed away recently at the age of 73. Hogwood, with his Academy of Ancient Instruments, recorded, with original instruments, an enormous quantity of the music of the Baroque Era. His many recordings of the music of Haydn and Mozart were also received with enthusiasm.We will sample some of the voluminous output of that trailblazing conductor.
