This review is from: Six Brandenburg Concertos (Audio CD)
There are plenty of technical reviews of this album around, so this is quiet a broad, personal review. I came to the Brandenburgs through Nick Drake, and settled on this recording. Hearing it made me want to hear other versions, but - though I now own others - I keep returning to this one.
The music recorded over the two CDs of John Butt's Dunedin Consort is wonderfully presented (I don't have an SACD Player, and nor do I experience any issues with the discs at all). The discs come well packaged in a double digipack with a tasteful, glossy booklet.
This is actually my album of the year (2013), and I will certainly be picking up DC's John Passion. All in all, I don't think you're going to find a superior version of these concerts for some time.
