Format: Audio CD
Every one of the six volumes of Café Zimmermann's recordings of Bach's "Concerts avec plusiers instruments" is absolutely excellent. The music is all magnificent and played with a freshness combined with depth of understanding which is a real joy. You may like to know that they have now been issued as a set J.S. Bach: Concertos with Several Instruments Complete Works Vol. I-VI which I recommend in the strongest possible terms.

Café Zimmermann are a small ensemble, generally playing with one instrument to a part and this, combined with terrific musicianship and scholarship, gives their interpretations a real zing in the livelier movements and genuine beauty and emotion in the slower passages. To me, this is what Bach should sound like: sometimes dancing, sometimes deeply spiritual, sometimes simply lovely. I have a much-loved set of Bach concertos by Trevor Pinnock Bach: Concertos and while these won't replace them in my affections, they will certainly stand alongside them and be played at least as often.

The other great strength of these discs is the programming. Many sets of these concertos group, say, the harpsichord concertos or the violin concertos together, and I find that I often don't want to listen to all of them one after another. Here, each disc has one of the Brandenburg Concertos and a varied combination of other concertos, so that playing the whole disc is a varied pleasure and I am always happy to let a whole disc play rather than changing it after one or two concertos.

This disc, like all the rest, is an unalloyed delight and guaranteed to give immense pleasure for many years. Very warmly recommended.

Take me to this Café 9 Jan 2010
By Biberfan - Published on Amazon.com

C.Z. has done some excellent recordings, this is but another one in their collection of Bach's concertos. The recorded sound is excellent and close, and there is a polish to everyone of the performer's contributions.

"It's a good record."

Now, if you're like me, you may be wondering if you need yet another version of these works?

Their Avison recording was daring and fresh. I find their Bach a little more restrained. Mr. Valetti has been known to be a more "gutsy" or spirited performer when he's paired with Manfredo Kraemer (Rare Fruits Council) than here at the Café Zimmerman. This is a good reference recording with minimal instrumentation that I admire, but I withheld one star... ultimately my preference is for recordings that really jump out and make a statement (think Il Giardino Armonico). If you find IGA or Europa Galante too mannered, then this might be your 5-star cup of tea.

Recommended!

Superb period instrument performances of Bach Concertos 25 July 2010
By E. Clinton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite recordings. The recorded sound is among the best I have ever heard in a classical music record. All the instruments are very clear on the recording. The playing of the Bach concertos is excellent. The musicians use period instruments and play at fast lively tempos. These musicians make it sound easy to play Bach. They bring this music to life.
