5.0 out of 5 stars Essential. Pure joy of life.
Superb performances, with the usual warm and wonderful sound in The English Concert/Pinnock/Archiv Produktion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Over-rated!
I can not stop wondering how many admirers Mr. Pinnock has in the world. In principle, this is not surprising. At the dawn of authentic movement he was one of those who convinced the audience in the eligibility of using of the original instruments and performance techniques.

2.0 out of 5 stars Over-rated!, 19 Sep 2013
This review is from: Bach, J.S.: Concertos & Orchestral Suites (Audio CD)
I can not stop wondering how many admirers Mr. Pinnock has in the world. In principle, this is not surprising. At the dawn of authentic movement he was one of those who convinced the audience in the eligibility of using of the original instruments and performance techniques. But from the very beginning, his execution, in contrast for example from Hogwood, Linde, Pickett and others, did not go beyond stereotype of the traditional perception of baroque music. The perception of Mr. Pinnock is still follow a romantic heritage. That's why everything is smooth, medium emotionally as candy in gold wrappers, no ups or failures in the performance of all composers. He is completely predictable in his work. Obviously, this is exactly what the audience likes. But all this is good only for the first perception of authentic music. Emotions need to seek at the other musicians.
