Format: Audio CD
The orchestral suite was a very popular form during the Baroque period. Bach had a great love of this form but sadly only four of his orchestral suites now survive, BWV 1066-1069. This recording by Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields orchestra is in my opinion the finest recording available. The suites are not played on period instruments that might bother some people but the sound of these 1970 recordings is both vivid and fresh. William Bennett is one of the greatest flautists of his generation and is very well supported by Thurston Dart on the harpsichord. At midprice this cd is a real bargain.

These orchestral suites are for me the best. Marriner plays with perfection and William Bennett is also brilliant with the flute (orchestral suite n°2). I highly recommend this version!
There is only one other version that can compete with this one. It is the version with Karl Münchinger.It is also very good.

I played suites 3 and 4 in a concert recently and wanted a high quality recording for my mum. She loved it, and listens to it when she wants to relax on her way back from work.

This playing is great. It is full of energy and precision. Compared to more modern performances on baroque instruments it perhaps sounds a little dated and inflexible. I have always been a great fan of ASMF with Neville Marriner, however, and there is a great deal to enjoy here.
