Notes and Editorial Reviews

...I turned to [an] older recording of the same four concertos by Thomas Zehetmair and the Amsterdam Bach Soloists. They play on modern instruments, but according to the principles of the historical performance practice. In every respect their performances are superior... They play Bach's concertos with subtlety and grace... As a result, Zehetmair's interpretation is very expressive...
