Finest interpretation June 24 2007
By Deb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Especially at this price you should compare these performances to any others.
Blacher was the concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic in the 90's, a
graduate of Julliard and these are, I feel, the best recorded renditions of
these works.

Great performance on BWV 1052! Jan. 7 2007
By Ed Huang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD several years ago. I listened to it then and felt the speed was a bit too fast for my taste, so I put the CD away and left it alone.

I played this CD again recently and listened to the Concerto in D minor (BWV 1052). I was still a bit uncomfortable about the fast speed at first, but I was very impressed by the nice and smooth performance by the Cologne group, so I listened to it a few more times to see if I can get used to the speed. Well, I did! Now I like the version a lot and I have put it to my favorite play list for my daily enjoyment. I've had 20+ years experience listening to Bach and I believe this version can be a valuable one for many Bach listeners.

This CD also contains Violin Concerto in A minor and E major. For those two concertos, I prefer J. Brezina / Camerata Romana version, which has been my long-time favorite.

I think if we get one great piece of music from one CD with this good low price, we should be happy.

Great performance--but not necessarily to everyone's tastes. April 8 2010
By Harry S. Gerla - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
To me this performance represents an ideal compromise. It has the liveliness and clarity of baroque ensemble performances, but is performed on modern instruments avoiding the sometimes sour intonation of performances on period instruments. Of course, like any compromise, it risks leaving some unsatisfied. If one insists on pure period instruments and practices, then I suggest the Manze/Podger Academy of Ancient Music performance on Harmonia Mundi. It is a lively and wonderful performance. My ears just can't get used to the intonation of most period baroque instruments. If your taste run to more modern instruments and somewhat (but far from excessively)romaticized performances and tempos, the Grimmaux/Krebbers/Garcia performances on Philips will please you greatly.
