Synopsis

Amazon.com
In his 1971 recording of the Brandenburgs with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Sir Neville Marriner used versions of the concertos "reconstructed" by harpsichordist Thurston Dart. These are lively readings, though some listeners may be put off by Marriner's inclination to be a little downbeat-heavy and by the natural tendency of the ASMF strings to smooth out the texture. --Ted Libbey

"This is a fairly decent recording, but it is not the only recording of the Brandenburg Concertos that Sir Neville Marriner's Academy of St. Martin in the Fields has put out. Personally, I don't like the fact that the recorders in the 4th Brandenburg Concertos are an octave higher than other recordings, which some people may find annoying. Also, this is not a complete set."
