5.0 out of 5 stars Early Harnocourt performances - now available in new bargain download package from the Bach Guild March 12 2016
By Phil (not) in Mågnoliá - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The performances here from this 1961 release Instrumentalmusik um 1600; Instrumental music around 1600 from France, England, Italy and Germany Concentus Musicus were originally released on LP Amadeo AVRS 6234. It includes 46 minutes of works by Estienne du Tertre, Eustache du Caurroy (France), Anthony Holborne, Thomas Morley, Thomas Jenkins, John Cooper, Elway Bevin (England), Johann Sommer, Isaac Posch, Samuel Scheidt (Germany), Giovanni Gabrieli, Gioseppe Guami, Tiburtio Massalano (Italy). Subsequently released on LP Vanguard BG 626 in LP MHS 3153 (1975).

These have now been released by the Bach Guild as part of a download package available here on Amazon that brings together the complete Bach Guild (i.e. Vanguard) recordings from 1952-1965 of cellist and conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt, leading the Concentus Musicus Wien that he had co-founded (along with wife, violinist Alice Harnoncourt). In fact, according to wikipedia, the Concentus Musicus Wien was first founded in 1953, the year Nikolaus married Alice, and only gave their first public concert in 1957 (I believe that it had not been christened with the name Concentus Musicus Wien until that time), so I can't explain the 1952 date.

These early recordings by Harnoncourt are generally considered the beginnings of the period instrument movement. From the biography on the really excellent website (www dot harnoncourt dot info), "Nikolaus Harnoncourt collected historical instruments and, in addition to his performing and conducting activities, devoted his time to his philosophical analyses of “Musik als Klangrede” (“music as speech”), which have to date remained the seminal works on the performance of early music, the key to an entire universe of forgotten works and musical experiences buried under the sands of time.":

I found this item to be very enjoyable. It is fun to listen to period music and listen for the difference between then and now. I enjoyed the variety of the CD.

This was my favorite LP (BG626) in the 70s, alas lost to a lost girlfriend.

Now reissued!

Every note still familiar.
