Notes and Editorial Reviews

Leonhardt’s mid-Seventies recordings of the Brandenburgs must surely rank among the finest period-instrument versions on the market. They are remarkably free of mannerisms, and convey a freshness and musicality that is life-enhancing. Among the many highlights, I would particularly commend the sprightly recorder-playing in No. 4, and Leonhardt’s dazzling harpsichord cadenza in No. 5.
