Format: Audio CD
This disc is as good an introduction to J.S. Bach as any I can think of. As the insightful liner notes indicate, Bach often used parts of earlier compositions while writing his 1730s concertos for harpsichord(s); researches into these concertos suggest that those included on this disc were originally written for oboe, and whether it's ultimately the case or not, this recording shines. Christian Hommel's restrained performance serves the music perfectly: each track features vast melodies and excellent ensemble-playing; meanwhile, the sound quality and balance couldn't have been better. This is pure, abstract music at its best: music whose power doesn't depend on what it might 'suggest' or 'represent', but only on its own language. And like all great music, the pieces on this disc become the springboards for contemplation that French painter Albert Gleizes yearned for in the early 1940s. Strongly recommended.

The recording was just as required as a birthday gift for a youngster just starting to learn to play the oboe.

Beautiful oboe music 28 Mar 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The harpsichord version of some of these concerti does not do these works justice. One cannot appreciate BWV 1055 and BWV 1053, for instance, on the harpsichord as much as one can appreciate them played on the oboe. The melodies are more noticeable here. Nothing gets lost in all that continuo playing. The first low oboe note that presents itself in the first track is enough to engage one's curiosity. Afterward, it's just enjoyment. These are beautiful recordings, and perhaps the only CD to offer the combination of these five CDs. The sound as well is divinely clear.

Great music making, shame on NAXOS … 2 May 2013
By Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Fives stars to the quality of music making and program, three stars to NAXOS for not including details or notes of the recording thus sending me to scratch around on their website to find it; making an average of four stars.

If I wanted a recording without proper notes I would have used some crappy download service for half the price. That said, the music is first class and highly recommended.

If you love Bach's music, and the oboe, you will certainly love this cd! My absolute favourite for the oboe, without a doubt! Delightfully beautiful music! Such wonderfully sweeping melodies!
