These magnificent recordings, containing all of the surviving orchestral and chamber music of Jan Dismas Zelenka, restored one of the greatest and most distinctive Baroque composers to the repertoires of performers and to the record collections of music lovers. They have lost none of their freshness, even though Holliger and his team re-recorded the Trio Sonatas for ECM. Some may have a preference for this second version, but both are excellent and these performances of the orchestral works never have been surpassed. Remember those insane horn parts? The asymmetrical melodies? The syncopated rhythms and suggestions of Czech folk music? They’re all here, and you’re going to love them. At theRead more Brilliant Classics price, this set is a steal.

BreathtakingJune 29, 2012By Anthony G. (Valley Stream, NY)See All My Reviews"This collection opened up an entirely new world of musical wonder for me. A veritable galaxy of unexpected musical originality, substance, and magnetism. It is difficult to separate one's self from listening over and over again to some of the movements here. Zelenka's place in the pantheon of great composers should be elevated as his music becomes better known. "Report Abuse
