Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This unusual quartet of Bach concerto transcriptions presents one of the most richly coloured discs of its kind'. Of particular interest, perhaps, will be the harpsichord concerto reworked for violin by Midori Seiler. The Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin make it all work with a combination of commitment and imagination." - THE GRAMOPHONE "This unusual quartet of Bach concerto transcriptions presents one of the most richly coloured discs of its kind'.
