4.0 out of 5 stars A satisfying recording... June 12 2000
By A Customer
Volume 1 of the Complete Bach 2000 set contains 15 cds covering the cantatas BWV 1 through 47 as recorded by Nicholaus Harnoncourt and Concentus Musicus from 1971-1975. I was a little skeptical as to the quality of the recordings considering that Teldec is not a premier label, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the recordings, as well as the interpretations. I felt some of the canatas were rushed in their recordings as there are some obvious intonation problems on a few tracks, but not having any other recordings of the cantatas to compare them against, I feel that this is a wise purchase. This boxed set has exposed me to some of Bach's music that I would otherwise not have the ability to appeciate as trying to piece together a collection of the canatas from various artists would be an ardous task. It is worth noting that the recordings of the cantatas by Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque orchestra and choir have also recieved favorable reviews if you are in the market for a collection of the cantatas. It is also worth noting that the CD's themselves are organized in carboard binders, which may be good to conserve space, but makes it a little more difficult to handle.

5.0 out of 5 stars thechnical perfection not always works May 8 2009
By Carmen Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I own gardiner versions and some herewege they play wonderfully and perfect in the sense of cleaness and articulations but harnoncourt versions of these cantatas have a sense of being in the church itself, and not only that whatever sounds like a mistake of intonation sounds to me as if it were a life concert, the recording of these cantatas are really very good and clean I recomment this version above all other
