5.0 out of 5 stars Best recording I've heard of these concertos January 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I guess it really depends on your personal tastes, but I would have to say that this upbeat, lively interpretation of the world's greatest concertos (specifically the C Major double) is unparalleled. In the fast movements the notes are played largely staccato and the tempo is quite brisk for the most part. If you prefer this type of a performance (as I do) get this cd! Just as a side note, their ending of the second harpsichord solo in the first movement of the c minor double (happens twice) without a trill where just about every other version puts one is indescribably cool!

5.0 out of 5 stars talent, talent talent June 29, 2000

Format:Audio CD
Bach...Okay, having established the bone fides of the composer let's move on the production: Hamburg Philharmonic...That's two down; all that's left is to discuss the pianists and now that's a tough one because while listening to it on my way home I was nothing short of entranced...I had to pull off at the next exit to make sure I wrote down the title etc.
Did I like it? Would I recommend it? Well, it's one of the items I'm buying for Christmas Gifts. Nobody in mind just yet but I know that somebody out there is going to make a comment about piano, Bach, classical music and I'll know I scored.
If you like any of these topics you will really like this album.

I couldn't believe my eyes when i saw 10 perfect classical baroque and romantic recordings in a trash heap. I immediately took them home and listened to all of them, there were hardly any scratches on them I couldn't believe someone would throw away such treasures.The one that really caught me was this one,The piano music was superb and by being used to Bach's harpsichord concertos this album was a unique treat to hear. I like this album because it sort of sounds more romantic than baroque and I don't entirely feel like i am in a banquet hall surrounded by powdered wigs, It puts me rather in my own space filled with beauty entirely in its own. Much like Glen Goulds take on Bach with his many piano replacing harpsichord concertos, although this one is unique because you have the four harpsichords normally played but instead four pianos and it sounds really good that way.This album is great piece of work but it does become a little bit mechanical sounding, this is due to harpsichord being a percussion instrument while piano is used for being a solo or main instrument that we would hear to enjoy melodies not so much in the percussive but rather to be tranquil in a sense, so it takes time to adapt to this record. I am sure that you will enjoy and listen to it many times.

Thank you.
