Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir John Eliot Gardiner presents a long-awaited, dazzling and insightful recording of the Violin Concertos with leader and soloist, Kati Debretzeni. Debretzeni also presents her own arrangement and world-premiere recording of the harpsichord concerto BWV1053, published by Fountayne Editions."Bach’s violin concertos reveal an ebullient sense of invention and rhythmic exuberance in their dance-based outer movements and a hushed intimacy in the sublime slow movements. It is rather as if one is overhearing a passionate conversation between friends. Yet to maintain the conversation’s flow the soloist needs not just to master the different technical demands of each concerto and to capture moods that range from the playful to the profound, Read more but also to locate the spirit of each individual movement and, as a result, to touch your soul. To me that is exactly how it felt when we recorded these four miraculous concertos with Kati Debretzeni and members of the EBS last December - with everyone sharing a palpable delight in the music-making." John Eliot Gardiner

REVIEW:

These are beautifully played and very well recorded perforamnces. The small orchestra includes accomplished soloists in their own right beside their highlighted leader and soloist, Kati Debretzeni. This new recording is up there with the best.
