Bach's Musical Offering is one of the most unique chamber works ever written. For instance instead of a fixed ensemble, in each movement the instrumentation varies from a lone soloist to combinations of two to four musicians. As one of the very few ensembles to record all of J.S. Bach's chamber music the Musica Antiqua Koln here offer one of the finest, most idiomatically knowing, crisply articulated and spirited performances of the work available. Archiv's sound as well is top notch with remarkable acoustic clarity and definition.

I find this to be an excellent presentation of this deeply contemplative, very late work of Bach's. They deliver a very thoughtful and intellectual performance.
This performance is more intimate than the orchestral version by the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester (q.v.).
