5.0 out of 5 stars Cöthen Edition of the Brandenburgs 10 Oct 2005
Format:Audio CD
This set of Brandenburg concerti is based upon the original Cöthen edition, and not the more often recorded final version which Bach sent to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721.

The main difference between the two versions is that the Cöthen edition, being an early draft, does not have a polonaise in the first concerto and lacks the extended solo Harpsichord cadenza in the fifth. For me, the famous virtuosic cadenza is one of the highlights of the set and its omission here should be noted and regretted.

That being said, as a rare and accomplished presentation of the Cöthen edition this set is of great interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Acadamy of ancient music 3 Feb 2011
By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
There are many, many recording of these great works by the magnificent Johann Sebastian Bach. This recording is most unique.
The Acadamy of Ancient Music with Christopher Hogwood specialise in "authentic instruments". And in the case of this recording it would be fair to say that they are trying to get as close as possible to an "authentic version" of these concertos. Or to put it more acuratly a more "original version".
The version that most people know, (quite rightly) is the versions of six concertos that were presented to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721. This is how they became known collectively as the "Brandenburg" concertos.
However the concertos were not written for the Margrave. Bach took a selection of concertos that he had already written and performed for some period of time prior to this presentation. He revised them to make them suitable to the Margrave and to appear a "set"of six.
Christopher Hogwood has gone back to the original manuscripts to the versions that Bach and his musicians actually played at Sunday Evenings of chamber music in Cothen.

So could we criticise Hogwood for presenting the Brandenburg Concertos that are not actually the Brandenberg Concertos? Well we could, but it wouldn't be right. The concertos may have become collectively known as the "Brandenburg" concertos but they are mostly the same concertos. And since there have been numorous revisions since the Margrave versions and various interpretations over the years, it is of no less value to look at the original concept of these works that changed from the time of the Margrave presentation.
Christopher Hogwood has brought together a body of research to create a difinitive interpretation of these pre Margrave concertos. The result is brilliant.

Format:Audio CD
Hogwwod and his forces bring the Brandenburgs to life. There is always something new to discover in these accounts. A bargain.
