Format: Audio CD
The number of recordings of Bach’s Orchestral Suites is legion indeed, and of those that I have heard, these unspectacular but proficient offerings from Slovakia are probably the least historically informed, not really bearing comparison with the “experts” of the early music/period instrument movement (with the English Concert directed by Trevor Pinnock on Deutsche Grammophon Archiv leading the pack as far as I am concerned). However, if it is not historicity but general “pleasantness” which is your objective, and if you are not a Bach connoisseur but just someone who wants to get acquainted with this music, the two Capella Istropolitana CDs should do quite nicely, their bargain price being one attraction, the other being the inclusion of BWV 1070, which, although it is obviously not by Bach (that is admitted by the liner notes but can also be clearly heard), is well worth listening to as a sample of the kind of music that Bach would have performed with his Leipzig Collegium Musicum at Zimmermann’s coffee-house. If you prefer a historically informed performance on modern instruments, Naxos have re-recorded Suites 1 through 4 with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra directed by Helmut Müller-Brühl, and I suspect that most listeners who have a more than superficial acquaintance with Bach will find that award-winning CD more satisfying. It contains all four original suites on one CD, but you don’t get the additional material that the Capella Istropolitana added on its 2 CD series.

J.S. Bach: Suites (Overtures), Vol. 2 is a 1989 Naxos recording starring the Capella Istropolitana under direction of Jaroslav Dvorak. Music Notes have been written by Keith Anderson. The pacing is right on the mark and I truly feel that they understand the music and genius of Bach. Well done indeed! Highly recommended. 5/5.

For the price it's ok, but for a few dollars more,

look for something else.
