Wonderful version of Bach's Harpsichord Concertrii

"Having experienced in person the performances of Bach's Branderburg Concertii in person by the Bach American Soloists, I knew I wanted to hear their conductor Jeffrey Thomas' renditon. In a word: wonderful. The sound is crisp and their rendition is fast and lively as always, without being "too heavy" as one of the complaints my sister shares for not liking Bach and preferring Chopin...Whatever!! The only fault I could find with the recording is that the otherwise strong & brassy sounding Mietke harpsichord is a single manual instrument and there are at times a certain "monotony" to the dynamics of the movement (specially noticiable in the D minor Concerto). That's the only reason I gave it a 4 star review. One, however, cannot go wrong with the purchase of this disc."

"My favorite track is number seven, BWV 1052, Allegro I. This is an excellent recording and is enjoyable to listen to again and again."
