The Leppard-set is one of my favourite recordings of the Brandenburg concertos. It is fresher than the velvety Baumgartner-recordings. I also enjoy Karl Ristenpart's elegant & noble set, when it comes to modern instruments, although I find Leppard more engaging. For original instruments I prefer Hogwood, but I like Savall too. For the other concertos by Leppard, search amazon: B00009P1PI.

It's good to have Raymond Leppard's well executed Brandenburgs back in circulation on this inexpensive Universal Classics label. I have always considered his performances nicely balanced, lively and consistently musical. I also feel they deserve to be at the top of the list among modern versions. For my money, they outshine any of Marriner's representations. Not long ago, however, I enjoyed an interesting experience, listening for the first time to an earlier,"original" instruments account of the Brandenburgs. Like a number of others, I grew up strictly with the modern performances, never really paying much attention to nor having much interest in the "authentic" approach as it emerged later in recordings. Well, upon listening to the early "original" style, I not only found myself fascinated by it but also actually preferring it to the modern. Currently, I am evaluating several performances in the "original" format and expect to post a review shortly on a favorite or recommended version.

This is an excellent recording of the first three Brandenburg Concertos. The recording of concerto #3 is just amazing and one of the best recordings I have ever heard of any piece.
My experience is that Sir Neville Marriner is almost always a safe choice. His career is most impressive. This is a classic recording.

I had previously owned a vinyl set of Brandenburg recordings by the Berlin Philharmonic, with Herbert von Karajan. I had bought it thinking, Bach is German, thus the Berlin Philharmonic should have a good interpretation. When I first heard this recording and its companion, I was simply blown away at the difference in the sound.This recording of the Concertos uses sparse instrumentation to present a sound that can best be characterised as subtle. It's a completely different presentation from the full orchestration version that I had previously heard. I do not claim to be a Baroque scholar, but it seems to me that Neville Mariner has definitely got it right with these recordings.
The companion recording is : Bach: Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 4, 5, 6
I would say exactly the same things about the recording of Concertos 4, 5, & 6

I lost my previous version of the Brandenburg Concertos, and couldn't remember who did them, so thinking Neville Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields is a safe choice (I almost always like how they perform anything), I bought this one. It's typical Marriner, orchestrated and performed as it should be. It just doesn't seem quite as exciting as I remembered my previous version was - but maybe that's just a trick of memory. I'm happy with it.

These concerti have been a long time favorite for this family. When my kids were young, they would request this music to be played at bedtime. This was a replacement purchase for the disc that went missing. A must-have in our music library.

It's my favorite music performed by my favorite orchestra. It lacks that "analog sound", but I bought digital music, so I can't complain about that.
