5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one for the 1052, a superb performance. 29 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Buy this one for Trevor Pinnock's performance of the 1052 in D minor. An absolute triumph.
If there was track to listen to on that desert island, it would be this one.

In my opinion, the 1063, 1064 and 1065 are better recorded on the Christopher Hogwood version, than on this recording, but worth having anyway as of course, they are beautifully played. It's just that the Hogwood version is a bit more 'headbangy'. Not an elegant phrase, but accurate!

The 1057 version of Brandenburg4 is lovely. The ornamentation of the two recorders is reminiscent of David Munrow's version from the 1960s, very exciting.

All in all, a great collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful admixture of novelty and déja vu 30 Aug 2011
By Ralph Moore TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This must be some of the most unfailingly uplifting music ever written, the apotheosis of elegance, harmony, balance and sentiment.

The endearingly quirky cover design of three plump cherries is somehow wholly apt: they refer to the label and also to how each of these concertos presents a trio of luscious, beautifully proportioned movements as perfectly satisfying and life-enhancing as a feast of fresh fruit. Trevor Pinnock's playing is beyond reproach, even - or especially - when he takes the Allegro of BWV 1055 or the Presto of BWV 1056 faster than at first seems advisable and the strings of the English Concert are as fleet and fluent as he is; their unity is wonderfully precise. Pinnock is joined in the concertos for 2, 3 and 4 harpsichords by equally distinguished musicians and the whole enterprise just exudes a serene confidence and joy in their music-making.

Part of the pleasure of this set derives from recognition of how Bach reworked music more familiar in another guise and key; hence we hear the fourth Brandenburg Concerto and the two surviving violin concertos transposed down a tone and reworked in a way which combines familiarity and novelty. Just when you might start to feel that you'd like some variety in the sonority from a surfeit of twanging harpsichord, no. 1057 gives us two mellow recorders to provide bucolic delight.

The sound is superb, achieving great clarity and depth. It might well be that the balance between the harpsichord(s) and orchestra has been judiciously tweaked but it doesn't sound artificial.

I also very much enjoy the arrangement of some of this music for piano of which there is an excellent bargain Naxos recording but this Trio collection provides a complete and utterly seductive survey of Bach at his most inventive and irrepressibly melodic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, spirited accounts 4 Nov 2013
By Mike Davey VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have recently acquired this on CDs to replace my very worn set of vinyl discs.

This music never fails to lift my spirits and make me smile, each time thinking of the other versions that Bach has borrowed or altered etc - something that Handel also did in a major way.

The playing is heart-warming, brisk as usual with Pinnock and his team and very much deserves a place on the shelves. i find myself coming to this music over and over again for the sheer vivacity of the playing and Bach's way with arrangements.

The cover is splendid in this Trio incarnation - the trio of cherries also makes me smile every time!

5.0 out of 5 stars An "oldie" but a "goodie" 12 Sep 2008
By Steven Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have the original version of this with the original ARCHIV cover featuring a very beautiful photograph of a double manual harpsichord. But consider this one, it is cheap!

The sound on this recording is vivid, even though some of the recordings are analogue (i.e. ADD rather than DDD) but don't let that minor issue deter you. If you want to hear all of Bach's extant harpsichord concertos, then look no further (well, do consider Egarr as well! ;-)). The English Concert play with style, power and panache. Mr. Pinnock is an excellent harpsichordist and he understands this music very well.

Highlights? The very poetic and, damn it!, sexy interpretation of the second movement of the F minor harpsichord concerto and the dazzling "harpsichord galaxy" of the concerto for four harpsichords (ripped off from Vivaldi's quadruple violin concerto, as you know!).

Lovely sounds and music I like to listen to whilst having a glass of wine on a cool sunny afternoon, as I am doing as I write this review.

RECOMMENDED!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahhhh! Bach. 4 May 2014
By Augenezum - Published on Amazon.com

Probably one of my most listened to classical recordings over the past 25 years. This is the quintessential recording of some of the best music by JS Bach. This is a fantastic bargain based on the quality of the performances and recordings.
The performance by Pinnock and the English Concert is stellar. Definitely not to be missed of you enjoy Harpsichord music.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great JS Bach collection 18 April 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The harpsichord is one of my favourite instruments of the classical era. And for me, JS Bach was the best at writing music for it. To me, this collection is absolutely perfect. I am not an expert at classical in any sense, but I know what I enjoy hearing and this 3 cd set does it for me.

Rarely has a single set packed so much great music into three CDs. This is simply a wonderful listening experience.
