Notes and Editorial Reviews

Boston Baroque/Martin Pearlman. Telarc CD-80412 [2 CDs]

Boston Baroque and Martin Pearlman recorded a splendid set of the Brandenburgs on period instruments in 1993 and 1994. Made entirely in the USA, these snappy, crisply articulated and fluent performances rely heavily on the talents of violinist Daniel Stepner (who doubles as one of the two solo violists in Concerto No. 6). Among the highlights, the joyous finale to Concerto No. 4, and the superb cembalo cadenza in No. 5, played by Pearlman. Along with outstanding sound, there’s a winning sense of freshness and discovery in these performances. – Ted Libbey, author of The NPR Guide to Building a Classical CD Collection.
