These performances by Goberman and his hand-picked ensemble first came out on Library of Recorded Masterpieces as a 2 LP set back in 1960. They were considered revolutionary then because Goberman followed performance practices which reflected our then-best understanding of how the pieces would have been performed in Bach's time. Ensembles were small, vibrato was minimized, tempi in the fast movements were very quick. Goberman was a charismatic, energetic and intelligent musician who died way too young and also left us an (incomplete) Haydn symphony set that was also way ahead of its time.

Your best bet for these recordings is to go to page 20 of Haydn House's website. They have done a very high-quality CD transfer from the original LRM LPs and have tastefully augmented the very dry and pinched original sound. It's well worth the $20 investment.

Very good interpretive choices, fine soloists, excellent balances
(as a previous commentator noted), presence of alternative hpschd.
cadenzas in No. 5, all should save this little-noticed performance
from disappearance. It manages to combine the virtues of "tradition-al" and HIP approaches, without the attendant drawbacks.

Years ago I owned this recording. When the tape became unusable, I looked for and bought this same one. Along with the longer, traditional ending, I appreciate the "alternate" ending of the first movement of the Fifth, though the more common ending is preferred. A major selling point is that the harpsichord is nicely featured. In virtually all other harpsichord recordings of this finest Brandenburg Concerto, the instrument is too weak to appreciate as it should be.
