CD Reviews

Great performance on BWV 1052!
Ed Huang | Canada | 01/08/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this CD several years ago. I listened to it then and felt the speed was a bit too fast for my taste, so I put the CD away and left it alone.

I played this CD again recently and listened to the Concerto in D minor (BWV 1052). I was still a bit uncomfortable about the fast speed at first, but I was very impressed by the nice and smooth performance by the Cologne group, so I listened to it a few more times to see if I can get used to the speed. Well, I did! Now I like the version a lot and I have put it to my favorite play list for my daily enjoyment. I've had 20+ years experience listening to Bach and I believe this version can be a valuable one for many Bach listeners.

This CD also contains Violin Concerto in A minor and E major. For those two concertos, I prefer J. Brezina / Camerata Romana version, which has been my long-time favorite.

I think if we get one great piece of music from one CD with this good low price, we should be happy.

Finest interpretation

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Especially at this price you should compare these performances to any others.
Blacher was the concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic in the 90's, a
graduate of Julliard and these are, I feel, the best recorded renditions of
these works."
