Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Dunedin Consort performs an invigorating performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos on this 2013 recording. Under the expert-direction of Bach-specialist, John Butt, Dunedin’s first instrumental release was a resounding success. The recording was nominated for both a ICMA and Gramophone Award and was #2 on The Herald’s ‘Best Classical Albums of 2013’ list. Bach’s Six Brandenburg Concertos are essential and enduringly popular works in the Baroque orchestral repertory, full of interesting instrumentation choices and dancing melodies. With characteristic aplomb, the Dunedin Consort brings to life the very best of the Baroque period. A powerfully intelligent interpretation, this period performance of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos is Read more fulfilling on every level. Among Dunedin Consort’s talented instrumentalists are Pamela Thorby (recorder), Cecilia Bernardini (violin), Jonathan Manson (cello) and John Butt (harpsichord). Read less
