This is a great recording - especially the Brandenburg #2 with its incorrigibly insouciant trumpeter. If you're looking for a technically correct version, this isn't it. The Trumpter hits a few sharp notes, but the sheer exuberance of his performance earns your forgiveness forthwith. Lovely lovely version of some of Bach's most beautiful music.

I originally planned on giving this boxed set '2-stars', but decided to rate it with only 1 to offset any unrealistically high ratings. I was not pleased with these interpretations of both Bach's Brandenburgs and his Orchestral Suites. I am usually quite pleased with the work of Andrew Parrott, but not at all in this case. The Brandenburgs are played with too, too much zeal, almost with the same effect as with turning a music box's crank too quickly. The whole 4 CD set has a "squeeeky" quality to it. I think that the quality of Andrew Parrott ends with the works of J.S. Bach. He is excellent "from Monteverdi to Vivaldi" (The title of an exceptional boxed set of his), but not beyond. For both the Brandenburgs and the Orchestral Suites I give my highest recommendation to Christopher Hogwood.
