These are excellent performances of some well-known works of Bach along with a couple which might be less known, played one to a part, which makes sense as a reproduction of the original performances in a small coffee house, Cafe' Zimmermann, where space was at a premium, and mostly for the customers. My only reservation with this release, as with some others in this series, is that some of the performances are not quite on the level of inspiration we might expect in such great music. I don't feel like getting up and dancing (except, maybe, in the Orchestral Suite No. 3), which other versions, such as those by Pinnock, Hogwood, Goebel, and (for modern instruments), Marriner, make me feel like doing. I think the reason is probably the apparent lack of a leader in this youthful group. The Orpheus Chamber Orch. manages to somehow get over this situation, but the presence of a conductor (such as those mentioned) may help bring in more passion and feelinghere to what are otherwise excellent performances of Bach concerti and an Overture (Suite). Sound is good--clear, clean, warm and balanced.
