Nicolaus Harnoncourt is simply the best music interpreter in the world. I do buy all the consert cd's I can find there's no better music to find enywhere. Picture and sound quality are very good for it's age. LISTEN AND LEARN!

Spellbinding 7 Dec 2010

Brandenburg Concertos are pieces that engross a music-lover forever. What attracts me in this version is its focus on the conversational and relational character of the music. It gives the performance a gripping emotional and erotic charge. The pieces require virtuosic playing, but virtuosity is the medium here, not the goal. These are in a way disciplined performances; the musicians do not get carried away by their abilities. It is a group of people conversing through music, and they do so with eloquence and elegance. Theirs is not a light or bubbly chat, but neither is it ever scripted or turgid. It is a thoughtful, intimate conversation among and for music-lovers; partaking in it makes for an absorbing experience.

The two DVD set also includes several smaller pieces as well as a series of interviews with Harnoncourt about the Brandenburg Concertos. The interviews are quite simply among the most intelligent and pleasurable `bonuses' I have encountered. Here too, the point is not just to add some nice pictures for fans to ogle at--as bonus features often tend to be--it is rather to explore a work of art for an interested audience. A rare treat!

Harnoncourt on the top of his game in Brandenburg Concerti and in the Coffee Cantata. 3 Oct 2012
By Abert - Published on
This is a dual-DVD set. While one reviewer has commented on the Brandenburg Concertos in some detail, it is nonetheless necessary to mention the other disc, containing principally of the rarely performed (today) Coffee Cantata BWV 211.
The drinking of coffee attained an addictive degree in Europe during J S Bach's time, and like most television commercials, this cantata depicts the joy and obssessions of coffee by a young girl, to the dismay of her father.
The piece is a rather short one, with a narrator (tenor), sung here by the great German tenor Peter Schreier (who also 'appears' in this performance.)
The wilful daughter is beautifully portrayed by the beautiful Janet Perry, with a wonderfully rendered Heute noch, with the exception of the imperfect diction. As her father, bass Robert Holl is a dramatically effective stern father.

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 - 1750)

The only quibble one might have with this set is that it should have also included the Peasant Cantata.

Probably the best 31 Dec 2013
By Luis Baqueiro - Published on

Superior to Richter's, Abbado's, von Karajan's, and more contemporary performances such as the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra's. Interviews concerning each concerto is a great opportunity to focused on perfomance and learning on the instrument period approach leading by Harnoncourt. The two-DVD set also includes the known Coffee Cantata, Concerto for Violin, Oboe and Orchestra and the Orchestral Suite Nr. 3. For an early 80's recording I would expect a higher definition, even Richter's performance of early 70's is superior on this aspect.
