5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Bach, 14 Mar 2012
By 
Andrew J. Blakemore "andyblakes2" (Walsall UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
The orchestral suite was a very popular form during the Baroque period. Bach had a great love of this form but sadly only four of his orchestral suites now survive, BWV 1066-1069. This recording by Sir Neville Marriner conducting the Academy of St Martin-in-the-Fields orchestra is in my opinion the finest recording available. The suites are not played on period instruments that might bother some people but the sound of these 1970 recordings is both vivid and fresh. William Bennett is one of the greatest flautists of his generation and is very well supported by Thurston Dart on the harpsichord. At midprice this cd is a real bargain.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect gift, 7 May 2013

I played suites 3 and 4 in a concert recently and wanted a high quality recording for my mum. She loved it, and listens to it when she wants to relax on her way back from work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good version!, 2 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These orchestral suites are for me the best. Marriner plays with perfection and William Bennett is also brilliant with the flute (orchestral suite n2). I highly recommend this version!
There is only one other version that can compete with this one. It is the version with Karl Münchinger.It is also very good.

Great Composer, great work , great Orchestra, good quality sound. CDs are for me better than any download, plus at Amazon suppliers second hand / used prices are far better value

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine recording, 8 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was a good recording of the 4 orchestral suites to which I enjoy listening. I am familiar with several of the movements (such as "Air on a G String") but also enjoyed several of the others with which I am less familiar.
