Throw me a life preserver!

Where can I find a score or a recording of Handel's Water Music Suite - except, the arrangement by Hamilton Hardy? I need to analyze a performance that I've already seen and need to refresh my memory, but all I can find is of other arrangements. I'm willing to pay a bit if it's only on an MP3 / other site - and just an outline of the structure of that arrangement or information about it would be great too!

Mid-1980's hunting-horns classical album?

I am looking for a classical music release that I last heard in maybe 1986, and all I remember is this: 1) It was on the Erato label; 2) it was nothing but the kind of horns used in (I think) fox hunting, 3) and the net effect was beautifully weird. Anyone know what the name of the album or group might be? [more inside]

Simple recording of classical guitar - what's a fair price?

Looking to record classical guitar music near me for a reasonable price - I am thinking of posting something up at the music school at the nearby university, and maybe a guitar shop or two in town if I can do that, and making some recordings with willing musicians. Is this a reasonable concept or a blindingly stupid idea? If it's workable, what sort of price range should I pay the musician(s)? [more inside]

Recommend music that combines jazz with baroque classical.

In Nina Simone's "Love Me or Leave Me" she plays a piano solo that incorporates a bit baroque* classical piano. Makes sense, since she was trained as a classical pianist, and the effect is wonderful. Please recommend some other songs or artists that use this kind of jazz/baroque combo. * Disclaimer: I'm not a classical music expert, so I may have the terminology wrong. I welcome your corrections.

Name that (classical) tune

Name that tune! In "Unfaithfully Yours", Rex Harrison cracks a joke around 00:16:30 about blah blah "pizzacato con motto vibratto" ("...like a dentist chipping out an old filling!"), then his orchestra launches into a classical piece. What is he having them play? Googling does not suggest that's its title.

happy classical

Wedding Filter: I'm looking for piano pieces that are light, happy, and energetic. I like classical and baroque (Mozart, Handel, Bach, etc.), and would prefer something not hacknied or cliched -- i.e. no Vivaldi Four Seasons or Delibes Lakme. Needs to be piano music or adaptable to piano. These would be played before the ceremony begins, as people are sitting down.
