There are lots of recordings of Bach's harpsicord concertos. With big orchestras (Karajan), small orchestras with old instruments or modern equipment. Most of them have their special benefits and are more or less interesting to hear. This one is from its appearane nothing special: A medium sized chamber orchestra of some reputation, the harpsicords replaced by Steinway Grands. But this recording sings Bach and no other one comes even close to this. Especially the slow movements take you way beyond baroque rigidity. Start listening with the Andante in BWV 1060. The applause for this interpretation goes to the Pekinel twins. They achieve a depth of dialogue which can not be heard very often. And in this recording it is preserved perfectly.
