This music is so wonderful that it needs absolutely no special pleading - just completely accurate, musical playing, and that is exactly what you get here. Nothing gets in the way of the notes, the flow of the movements. It's art concealing art, in a way - it all sounds so natural and unforced that it is easy almost to forget the peformers and the difficulties that this music imposes on them ; but for repeated listening, that's what you want. Quirky, 'clever', 'revelatory' approaches get in the way ; Bach doesn't need them. In addition, this is a very inexpensive set and it is absolutely cleanly and beautifully recorded. You really cannot go wrong.
