5.0 out of 5 stars Top Class Music, performed in Top Class Style, 13 Sep 2004
This review is from: Brandenburg Concertos [DVD] (DVD)
There's no doubt that the Brandenburg concertos are monumental works for so many reasons. For the listener, one could listen to each of these concerti consecutively and not get remotely bored due to the broad contrast in their styles in instrumentation.
There are many excellent and even more average recordings of these concerti. This is the first time I've seen them on DVD and what a fantastic edition!
The Freiburger Barockorchester have some fabulous musicians around the stand. Some of them have some fairly questionable haircuts (especially one of the Double Bass players)but that kind of adds to the fun.
All of the tempi in these performances are bright and brisk, as they should be. The slow movements don't dwell too much and the virtuoso soloists are given their chance to shine but without stealing all of the limelight, exactly as you would expect from such a high quality orchestra.
Further to this, if you're a trumpet player, I must especially recommend that you buy this recording just to see Friedemann Immer's awesome rendition of the 2nd Concerto. Try watching it without your jaw hitting the floor!
