5.0 out of 5 stars Pinnock Is Superb!!!!!!!!!!!, Sept. 21 2002
This review is from: Ctos (Audio CD)
I can't say enough about Pinnock performances. His interpretations of Bach's Harpsichord concertos are sprightly and energetic. These recordings are absolutely beautiful with the perfect balance of detail and ambience. Even thou Pinnock uses multiple instruments per part, these recordings come across as well balanced. I'd still like just a touch more volume to the harpsichord, but the sound is in perfect proportion to the number of instruments used. I especially like Pinnock phrasing of the melodic lines. The bouncy and well articulated violin playing compliments the solo harpsichord beautifully which is reminiscent of Leonhardt's historic and still superb recordings from the 1960's (still avialable on Teldec now Elektra/Asylum - #97452 ISDN B000000SPD. I've played these Pinnock recordings over and over again and they are still immensely enjoyable with every repeated listen!
Extremely recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and Inspiring..., Feb. 15 2002

This review is from: Ctos (Audio CD)
Pinnock and the English Concert give limber & exciting readings of these works; the Triple Concerto especially. I would recommend this set highly for both those familiar with this music, and those just discovering it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful period-instrument performances, March 18 2002
This review is from: Ctos (Audio CD)
First, the performances are first rate. Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert rarely disappoint. Although the ensemble uses interpretations and instruments from the 18th century, their recordings are never overly dry or self-consciously antique (which can happen in other authentic-instrument groups' collections).
The sound is still great, especially when you consider that some of these tracks were recorded 20 years ago. The fine original recordings -- all digital -- help keep these CDs sounding fresh. The aural balance is superb -- the sound projection is not too close, not too distant.
