Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Pinnock’s performances of the Bach Harpsichord Concertos first appeared in 1981 and have dominated the catalog ever since. In the solo concertos he plays with real panache, his scholarship tempered with excellent musicianship." "The double, triple and quadruple concertos are digital, and the combination of period instruments and playing of determined vigour certainly makes a bold effect." - Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs - 2005/06 Edition "Pinnock’s performances of the Bach Harpsichord Concertos first appeared in 1981 and have dominated the catalog ever since.

 Excellent Musicianship January 24, 2016 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "This 3-CD album of the Complete Harpsichord Concertos by Bach as presented by Trevor Pinnock and others at the harpsichord and accompanied by the English Concert (EC) is well done. I have another album featuring Trevor Pinnock at the harpsichord, Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and Pinnock presents well there as well. The sound quality of both the EC and the harpsichord playing as done by Pinnock and others is excellent, and the sound of the harpsichords is distinct and clear. In my opinion, this period instrument rendition of the concertos is top notch, which is what I’ve come to expect from the EC. In sum, this is a superb recording of Bach’s harpsichord concertos. Highly recommended." Report Abuse
