Notes and Editorial Reviews
This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
"[T]he work of another relatively new antiquarian group, the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin, is altogether more interesting. Performing with no set director and alternating concertmasters, the academy applies fuller instrumentation to the suites and takes a compleatist approach to repeats (Harmonia Mundi France 901578/9; two CD's). These players, too, have worked with the ubiquitous Mr. Goebel, and they seem to carry some of his spirit in a more selective approach to orthodoxy and more characterful emphases and phrasing. The instrumental sound is pungent and juicy in Harmonia Mundi's rich acoustic." -- James Oestreich, The
New York Times [6/20/96; reviewing the original release]
