Editorial Reviews

Heinichen's Dresden Concertos created quite a stir when they were first released a couple of years ago, and for good reason. This is vital, colorful music scored for a large and varied ensemble. Like most composers of his day, Heinichen spent the majority of his compositional talent in the service of vocal music, for either the opera house or church. These pieces represent his only surviving set of concertos, and anyone who enjoys, for example, Bach's Brandenburg Concertos or the orchestral works of Zelenka will certainly want to hear these as well. These performances are simply the last word in style and virtuosity. --David Hurwitz

It's a few years since this set won the Gramophone Award, but hearing it again very recently, it still provides a thrilling listening experience.

I'm not normally a lover of prominent brass instruments in early music where the sonorities are often too lean and bright for my taste. Well, there's plenty of brightness here, but it all comes from the sparkle and energy of an orchestra at the very top of its form.

I wouldn't say this is a set to listen to at one sitting. Better to pick and choose two or three concertos at a time. Or better still, go for the excitement of progamming just the allegros and hold on to your seat as the rhythms and stratospheric brass catapult you into the midst of the hunt.

Great stuff.

I love this wonderfull cd! If you like baroque horn music, and especially Quantz and Telemann, you will love this CD. The parts for the French Horn are well played for being played on authentic instruments. This is a must for the Baroque listener

This is a superb recording. The performances are vibrant and the quality of the recording is stunning. There is a warmth and fullness that is often missing in recordings of period instruments. The ensemble sounds HUGE. I particularly like the second movement of the Concerto in F (S. 234). Oboes are used instead of strings as the accompaniment to the flute solo.
A must have for any lover of baroque music.

If you enjoy baroque music, this is certainly a must. The clarity of this recording is wonderful. It has a kind of depth that I don't often find in CD recordings - almost as if I can reach out and take hold of the music. The fantastic Dresden Concerti are performed nearly flawlessly by Reinhard Goebel and his ensemble on period instruments, lending themselves to create a rich, classic CD recording.

Musica Antiqua Köln's recording of Johann David Heinichen is the most outstanding performance I have ever heard; it could only be topped by hearing the orchestra in a live concert. The fact that the instruments performed upon are authentic from the Baroque period enhances the quality beyond belief, beyond any level that the quality and tone of modern instruments could possibly reach. These concerti are sheer beauty in its most refined aristocratic form, reflecting the splendor of the Dresden Court at the height of its Baroque grandeur. It has been said that no one has excelled Heinichen in the absolute joy and jubilation his music stirs up in the soul. Reinhard Goebel and Musica Antiqua Köln do an unsurpassable job in bringing this man's inexplicably neglected compositions back into the musical repertoire. END

This award-winning 2 CD set of concerti grossi by the German composer Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729) is a gem... you are treated to fifteen concerti for a variety of instruments (including a bagpipe on disc 2!), each movement skillfully placed on on its own track by the recording engineers. A contemporary of Antonio Vivaldi, Jean-Phillippe Rameau, Johann Christoph Graupner, Georg Philipp Telemann and Geore Friderick Handel, Heinichen was at the center of a rich fusion between the German and Italian styles. Known for his operas as well as for his court music, Heinichen's concerti are marked by bouncy dance-like rhythms, joyful energy, and pretty aria-like adagios. Listeners are treated to horns, flutes, oboes, recorders, and violins in magical compliment. What makes Heinichen unique is his switching of lead instruments between movements. As an example, in his concerto in F major the vivace first movement is led by horns, the second adagio movement is led by flutes, the third movement by oboes, and the final allegro is once again led by horns. If you love Baroque music and are looking for something new and exciting, this CD set is a 'must have' for your collection. You can also purchase it as an mp3 album, which saves you some money! Highly recommended!

Heinichen is the Deep Purple of baroque music! Forgotten, but clearly GREAT! This music is easily as enjoyable as Bach, Vivalidi, Handel and Telemann. If you enjoy baroque, this is surely a collection you ought to own. The flawlessness of these recording is breathtaking. It has a kind of richness that I don't find in compact disc recordings. These recordings force you to sit down and just listen. The compositions may not be as complex and "deep" as Bach or Handel, but its very enjoyable and clearly more relaxing. The incredible Dresden Concerti (period instruments) performed flawlessly under Goebel. What an unsurpassable job in bringing Heinichens curiously abandoned works back into the catalog. Two or three hundred years from now Deep Purple will get their due as one of the important artists in rock music history.
PS: If you like baroque wind music, you will fall in love with this collection.
This is a must for the Baroque fan.
