  • Look elsewhere for much better performances

    By Valentín-Chen
    I am dreadfully sorry but I CANNOT recommend this album. Instead I make some recommendations toward the end which can replace all the tracks in this album, ones which I think you will enjoy and appreciate much more than this album! I started listening to Bach more than 10 years ago, and this was one of the first albums I purchased back then. Listened to it over again through the years, but recently concluded a nagging suspicion that the whole performance is just off tune, probably flat ...but can't be sure. The violin is shaky and lacking conviction. Sometimes the wind and brass sections feel equally off. In the end, it dilutes the grandeur and awe of Bach's music here. What this album DOES have going for it: well-balanced orchestra, great tempo, compelling phrasing, and a stately and English tone reminiscent of Elgar. The Orchestral suites are MUCH better, but the Brandenburg and Violin Concertos are just not recommendable at all. Fully disillusioned by this performance, I went on a search to replace all the tracks with better performances. I chose some of the more difficult movements to come down to a short list, especially with regard to violin, difficult melodic moments for the wind, or brass interjections. Then from there I listened to entire albums over the course of a couple weeks: Brandenburg Concertos #1 - Herbert Von Karajan, Berlin Philharmonic, 1965: WOW, the soul infused into these performances is stunning. And the entire performance is perfectly tuned. An older recording, and some movements might be a little slow but much better overall! The character of the music here feels like it has an underlying sorrow/darkness to it (ala Stokowski), which takes away from the joyous Baroque character, but in a way it’s hauntingly more beautiful this way. Orchestra vs. chamber effect. #2 - Virtuosi Saxoniae, Ludwig Guttler, 1997: This team totally nails the first two movements and it's demanding brass requirements. Nobody else sounds as clear! And actually they do the rest of the movements very well! Would probably default to this recording altogether. #3 - Tafelmusik, Jeanne Lamon, 1994: For the string movements this group wins, and again do very well on the other movements. Orchestral Suites #1 - Academy of Ancient Music, Christopher Hogwood, 1998 – A bright, full sound, and tuned much better. Slightly more character in this performance. #2 - Armonie Chamber Orchestra, 2009 -This is a very fun recording, capturing the "dance" feel of the movements. Very surprised and entertained by this one! Violin Concertos #1 – Tafelmusik, 1995 – This is it! Don’t need to look elsewhere! Beautiful, bright, fun, full, and more than well-tuned! Bach Collegium Japan - All of the above. Always an attractive sound when I hear Bach Collegium Japan randomly on Pandora. But when you spend time listening to a full album from them, you get the sense that they are "perfect imitation" as opposed to truly playing from the soul. Much like driving a Japanese car, everything works great and does what it's supposed to, but the drive lacks character. Good for background Bach I guess. I still recommend them due to the tonal quality of their recordings, but "drive a European car" if you want to have fun listening instead.
  • Well Done Overall

    The volume level of BMV 1068: II. Air is very low and required major adjustment. Otherwise well done overall.
  • Excellent

    Let's be completely honest, Bach rocks! The Brandenburg Concertos are among his best works. Great versions here.
  • Incorrect file

    I'm amazed that all these so-called lovers of Bach's music haven't commented on this, but the B. Concerto 3, mov. II recording is just not the right file. That is not the adagio, that's some other piece altogether. Otherwise these are some fine recordings. iTunes just needs to fix this problem.
  • Disapponted

    I am really disappointed with this collection: four tracks abruptly stop when they are halfway through. It could have been a very good collection of Bach's music, but it is impossible to enjoy it since some of the recordings are damaged. I wish I could replace them or have my money back.
  • Hard to get much better Bach than this!

    Absolutely incredible performance of the Brandenburg 5 first movement. Quality recordings found here, although I think the Brandenburg 3 first movement and the "Air on a G string" are little too slow. Still, it's a great album.
  • *Ok*

    I purchased this particular recording chiefly due to its having most, if not all of, bach's strings concerti written in his mid-thirties- at a very reasonable price. I guess this is a good cd for easy analysis since the tracks get almost painfully slow. Very occasionally you'll hear a phrasing or two that sounds... "staggered"? like a high school orchestra. I've heard the same pieces done better.
  • An intensely Pleasurable Orchestral/Conductor Combination! But...some of it is lost, in iTunes

    (Updated Review) Bach’s “Brandenburg Concerto #3, in G, III - Allegro” can be Either: THE Ultimate “Aural Experience” there is…; or NOT! It all depends on the Orchestra/Conductor Combination, and Audio Quality. This particular Orchestral/Conductor Combination — led by Sir Marriner’s deft and crisp conducting of the “Academy of St. Martin’s-in-the-Fields" Orchestra — is Intensely Pleasurable! It excels in all Aspects of Bach’s…, nay the World’s “Best Piece of Music Ever Composed!” The ONE thing Missing here, is the Audio Quality possible through other Media. The 4-Star Rating Reflects *That;* NOT its — otherwise well-earned 5-Star Rating. On whether obtaining it Digitally w/ or w/o a CD, that’s an Individual’s Decision. Believe it or not CDs are not yet Dead — and using your own Computer’s Audio Technology — you can always import it (in “Lossless Mode”) into iTunes, make a Playlist, yet retaining the Flexibility of having the Actual CD to take, and listen to anywhere, at any time. For single songs, here and there, where Audio Quality is less important, iTunes is Fantastic; not so, if I wish to preserve something for Decades to come, and THIS Piece of Music: I Certainly DO. Moreover, CDs don’t Crash; Hard Drives DO!

    I've always enjoyed listening to classical music, but when I took a music appreciation class in college, my love and enthusiasm for classical improved. I knew who Mozart and Beethovan was and I have always enjoyed listening to them, but I didn't know much of anything about Bach. The moment I first heard the first movement of his Brandenburg Concerto Number Five, I was hooked. From that moment on, Bach has become my all time favorite composer. His music brings a sense of calm and joy, I just smile and begin to bob my head and move my arms along to the music as though I was conducting the orchestra myself. This is why Bach is simply one of the best composers of all time.

    The Brandenburgs are definately the best out there, no questions asked. The tempi were perfect, the musicianship flawless, and had many unique ornaments that are lacking in other recordings. This is also good because Mariner layed off the Harpsicord, as many of his recordings are a little harpsicord potent. A must buy for anyone. But some of the violin concerti were simply dreadful. The violinist, Henryck Szercyng, sounded terrible, with a violin that was clogged and shaky. Overall, I would recomend buying the brandenburgs, but not the other works included.
