Format: Audio CD
This is yet another excellent disc from Simon Standage and Collegium Musicum 90. There are a great many very good recordings of three of the works here (and a great many not-so-good ones, too) and this stands with the best of them, I think.

The two solo Violin Concertos and the Double Violin Concerto are all here and are very well played. Standage is a terrific soloist - unshowy but with an effortless virtuosity which makes the music really shine and shows Bach's genius for what it is. Standage and Michaela Comberti produce an excellent Double Concerto, too, with the sublime slow movement really glowing with sensuous beauty and a delightful spring in the step of the outer movements. The fourth work is a reconstruction for three violins of the Concreto for Three Harpsichords BWV1064, which I really like. I always find the harpsichord version enjoyable but a bit of an indistinct jangle from the solo instruments, and it is a real pleasure to hear distinct solo lines from the violins here.

Collegium Musicum 90 are, as always, excellent throughout - supple, responsive and with a genuine sense of love for the music. Tempi in general are on the sedate side but without ever dragging and, for me, they judge this very well. The recorded sound is excellent, the presentation very attractive and Standage's notes are full and informative.

Whether or not you need another version of these concertos will depend on the state of your music collection and on your taste. The Concerto for Three Violins makes the disc worth buying for me even though I already have dearly loved versions of the others by Andrew Manze, Rachel Podger, Standage himself (with the English Concert) and others, and you won't be disappointed with the others either. Warmly recommended.
