* The three Belgian Kuijken brothers together with Robert Kohnen count among the most distinguished of all present-day early-music specialists. They have long since branched out into conducting and other
Read more far-reaching ways of propagating authentic Baroque style. But they are each masters of a different set of instruments, so their occasional reunions for concerts become genuine occasions.
* With The Musical Offering, played here in a rigorously reduced scoring, they demonstrate their great flair for style and their long-standing experience.
* Recorded in the beautiful setting of the historical Old Town Hall in Leipzig.
* Bach’s late masterpiece "The Musical Offering" (1747) is a musical homage written on the occasion of Bach’s visit to King Frederick The Great of Prussia.
