 An Oldie but a Goodie!!!! July 12, 2012 By Clifford H C. (Thompson, MB) See All My Reviews "I purchased this album the month that it came out on CD oh so very long ago. These were the days before the internet where you had to actually walk into the store and look through the racks. I purchased these recording and have never looked back. I still believe that these are the best interpretations of the Brandenburg Concertos on the market. The pacing of the music is absolutely perfect. The soloists and performers are top-notch as if they performed this music every day. I cannot say enough about how good these performances are! These recordings make the debate about authentic or modern instruments juvenile. These recordings are so good even Bach would give them a standing ovation. These Brandenburg Concertos have a joy, brilliance and a life that shines though every note!!!" Report Abuse
