This has to be of the best classical bargains around. The recording is crisp and clear with superb playing by Anner Bylsma who is ably supported by the Concerto Amsterdam conducted by Jaap Schroder. Although recorded in 1965 (yes, 1965!) the clean sound and ambience is as fresh as if it were recorded only yesterday in full digital. If you are after these works then look no further. It is a pity that they have not released the other 8 cello concertos (at least I have not found them yet) else I would buy them without question. Very highly recommended. In addition, this is a key best Buy *** Penguin Guide recording. Need I say more.
