Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

This first-rate set of Brandenburg Concertos (with its companion containing Concertos 1, 2, and 3) offers stylish, mostly modern-instrument performances that remain faithful to the spirit of Bach's scores--recorders are used in No. 4, harpsichord in No. 5, and viols in No. 6--while exploiting the brilliant timbre of 20th century strings. In 1980, Sir Neville Marriner was one of the gods of Baroque and classical period music, and this disc shows why. --David Vernier

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect gift March 19, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had the record sent as a gift to my daughter who had never heard any of the Brandenburg Concerti--and considered Bach "square." I received an ecstatic long e-mail after she heard this performance. "I'm in love!" she wrote. "I absolutely love this record. I listen to it over and over. It sounds like bells and birds!I didn't understand that Bach's music was like this."

5.0 out of 5 stars Suberb Recording of Masterpiece Brandenburg Concertos January 24, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This CD is one of the best recordings I have heard of the Brandenburg Concertos, and I have heard many. Masterful! Sir Neville Marriner has one of the most distinguished careers in classical music, and my experience is that his CD's are almost always an excellent choice.
Also, Brandenburg concerto #3 on the companion CD is just astonishing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misleading information about this recording August 21, 2013
Format:Audio CD
There is nothing to indicate that this is in fact a re-issue of the original. You think from what Amazon tell you that you are buying a 2010 recording ... however this is the 1980 CD (even the cover hasnt changed). Its a superb recording, but I do think they need to be honest and let potential buyers know it is a very early CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Sublime November 24, 2007
Format:Audio CD
During the holiday season one year, while everyone was away and I was getting ready to move away from my old college town, I discovered one of my roomates classical recordings and played it louder than any heavy metal enthusiast in mid-winter.

This is my favorite classical recording and the greatest of these is Concerto No. 3 in G, tracks 8-10, especially 8 and 10. The allegro sends my spirit above the clouds.

Listen to this and it will affect your view of music and the world.

Bach had the greatest gift - simply sublime!

I found these concertos to be played beautifully. The recordings are crystal clear, and the set is well worth the money.
