 Excellent Presentation November 28, 2015 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "The Brandenburg Concertos as arranged by Bach and played by Christopher Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music (AAM) are excellently presented here. This music, as played with period instruments, comes as close as possible to the way that Bach probably intended for these pieces to be performed. The deft execution of the notes of the piece causes this recording to stand out, along with the excellent quality of the recording. The French horn playing is excellent on track three; bringing an ancient French horn under control when played is worthy of note, and the AAM under Christopher Hogwood’s direction does an excellent job here. In sum, this is an excellent rendition of the Brandenburg Concertos, worthy of high praise, and I highly recommend this album." Report Abuse
