This review is from: Six Brandenburg Concertos (Audio CD)
These are highly enjoyable performances of this great music. Using one instrument per part gives a greater clarity, the better to appreciate the contrapuntal wonders going on beneath. The horns in the first concerto can be a bit swamped by a large band, but here they more than hold their own. Both playing and recording are first rate, and the cadenzas in the fourth and fifth concertos are dispatched with effortless virtuosity. Wonderful stuff - Brandenburg must have been either deaf or an idiot.
