Biography

Rivaled only by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Neville Marriner was one of the most important of the early figures who spearheaded the reawakening of modern interest in Baroque and early Classical music. In the 1950s, he founded Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, the first British early music ensemble to find a large international audience. Marriner has since become one of the most popular conductors ... Read more in Amazon's Sir Neville Marriner Store

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Bill Glen on 1 Mar. 2014
Format: Audio CD
These are indeed elegant courtly performances and I enjoy this bargain box. If I were to refine my vote I would be easily persuaded to retract the final star from the Brandenburgs as for all the polish and beauty I feel that there is an impersonal veneer that comes between me and absolute enjoyment of the music making here when I compare it to other favourite readings which have a degree more character. It may be that the elegance is that bit too polished, and partly it relates to the recording quality itself which is a pretty polished sound that I find adds a very slight smoothing out of textures to my ears. Nothing that damning in any major sense as I still like these performances and given the bargain price they will provide many people with a great deal of enjoyment, as they do me.

To my ears the real five star performances in this set are what I find to be Marriner's more imaginatively directed accounts of the four orchestral suites which are equally elegant and courtly and somehow have more personality about them and it is for this reason that I feel the set as a whole merits five stars.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Ralph Moore TOP 100 REVIEWER on 12 Dec. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Bach's greatest orchestral music neatly packaged onto 3 CDs at a super-bargain price in excellent digital sound performed by a small, first-class modern-instrument ensemble directed to play in a fleet, alert and vivacious manner: what's not to like?

There are some famous names amongst the individual instrumentalists, including Kenneth Sillito, George Malcolm and Iona Brown, all of whom play without a hint of blandness; this is joyfully infectious music-making which will never become wearing on the ear.

I haven't much to add; Marriner could just occasionally stand rightfully accused of miniaturising or smoothing over music, perhaps as a result of simply recording too much and becoming routine but not here. I have traditional tastes in Bach and am fond of Philip Ledger's recording of the Brandenburgs with the English Chamber Orchestra, which is similar in style to Marriner's, and for a weightier approach in the Overtures I love Karl Munchinger and the Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, but this Warner set is equally satisfying unless you want period instruments, in which case I would start with Trevor Pinnock.

Otherwise, these thirty year-old recordings provide all you could wish for.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Philoctetes TOP 500 REVIEWER on 21 Mar. 2013
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was in the market for a more elegant presentation of the Brandenburgs, one to replace the version by an eminent Italian ensemble of whom you may have heard. I opted for this trio, which also finds space for the Orchestral Suites, and it is proving commendable and recommendable. Sometimes the period instrument brigade end up sounding like glorified amateurs, village bandsmen, with their gruff and raspy tones and scrawny string sections. It's as well to remember that such music as Bach's concerti were written for refined, probably enlightened minds. Now the music is ours, to sit placidly or dance around in our underpants.

Buy this and you're going up in the world.

Definitive? Probably not. But very good. 5 Sept. 2008
By Thomas B. Dawkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is probably the best Brandenburg cycle available with modern instruments, no huge orchestras like von Karajan, the recorder parts aren't played on flutes like the Britten cycle, and the tempi in general aren't as slow as Richter's. That said, my favorite overall is probably Trevor Pinnock's with The English Concert, but I do know that some people have a hard time listening to period instruments for whatever reason and I respect that.

Marriner can drag a bit, and the readings aren't as dynamic as some, but it's a very good starting point for those unfamiliar with one of the greatest cycles in Baroque music, and now at budget price, really a must-have.

Outstanding "Benchmark" Recordings of the Brandenburg Concertos 17 Aug. 2008
By Todd Carlsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Highest recommendation. This is a very safe and "middle of the road" recording of the Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites. All receive good reviews from classical music review books. The only criticism that couldb be leveled against them is that some people, due to personal tastes, may like other versions more. These recordings are not very daring with blazing soloists and do not use original instruments. They are simply great overall. I own these Brandenburg concertos as seperate discs as very much enjoyed them.

The recording of Brandenburg Concerto #3 is just amazing and one of the best recordings I have ever heard of any piece. It takes flight and soars.

A great buy for those interested in Bach 2 Sept. 2009
By J. Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The orchestral suites alone are worth the price of this CD. I have purchased the Brandenburg concertos before, many years ago on LP. This recording is quality DDD and I will play it again and again. 3 CDs were a bargain price and I didn't get it on gold box, but am happy with it.

Solid Bach. 13 Nov. 2011
By Kelvin Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I purchased this set mainly for the Brandenburg Concertos, but like other reviewers, am very impressed with the performances of the Orchestral Suites. These are older recordings, and Marriner does his usual fabulous job. Less brittle and coherent than Hogwood and the Academy of Ancient Music, but nowhere close to the newer recordings by John Eliot Gardiner and the English Baroque Soloists. The difference with ASMF performances are they, thankfully, are not done on period instruments. Which makes them worth at least having in the collection. And for this price, as less than five dollars a disc, well worth the investment. As a reference set, a solid choice. Recommend.

Bach's greatest with a fine preformance. 8 Nov. 2012
By Bub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The recording quality and performance are outstanding. The Acadamy of St Martin and Mariner did a wonderful job. The horns and keyboard were a joy to listen to. I have enjoyed this album many times already and I never get tired of it. Bach is music for the soul. It is great to listen to, when I am on my exercise bike "TRIGGER, Roy Roger's horse" I can ride for miles finding stray cows.

I bought this from Amazon. I always get great service from them.
