Top Customer Reviews

By Marcia TOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 Feb. 2011
Format: Audio CD
There are many, many recording of these great works by the magnificent Johann Sebastian Bach. This recording is most unique.
The Acadamy of Ancient Music with Christopher Hogwood specialise in "authentic instruments". And in the case of this recording it would be fair to say that they are trying to get as close as possible to an "authentic version" of these concertos. Or to put it more acuratly a more "original version".
The version that most people know, (quite rightly) is the versions of six concertos that were presented to the Margrave of Brandenburg in 1721. This is how they became known collectively as the "Brandenburg" concertos.
However the concertos were not written for the Margrave. Bach took a selection of concertos that he had already written and performed for some period of time prior to this presentation. He revised them to make them suitable to the Margrave and to appear a "set"of six.
Christopher Hogwood has gone back to the original manuscripts to the versions that Bach and his musicians actually played at Sunday Evenings of chamber music in Cothen.

So could we criticise Hogwood for presenting the Brandenburg Concertos that are not actually the Brandenberg Concertos? Well we could, but it wouldn't be right. The concertos may have become collectively known as the "Brandenburg" concertos but they are mostly the same concertos. And since there have been numorous revisions since the Margrave versions and various interpretations over the years, it is of no less value to look at the original concept of these works that changed from the time of the Margrave presentation.
Christopher Hogwood has brought together a body of research to create a difinitive interpretation of these pre Margrave concertos. The result is brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the very best 21 Mar. 2011
By P. Hamm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Quite simply, the greatest of the Brandenburgs that I have encountered. The playing is lively, the sound is great. This is far better than the other AAM Brandenburg from about 10 years later. In my top 5 favorite Classical recordings. It's out of print, but worth hunting down.

These are quite a pair of discs. WE had owned these before Katrina, and buying and listening now makes me miss the years we did not have them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a great set of Brandenburg Concerti 26 Mar. 2009
By Stuart Gustafson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have owned this set of the 6 Brandenburg Concerti for over 20 years (the 1985 recordings). It might be easy to criticize Christopher Hogwood for "his interpretation," but he is giving us the original version of these immensely popular pieces. I am not a trained musician, but I know what I like to hear, and I really love hearing these pieces performed.

This set was among the first of my classical CD collection; it's actually #3 in my own catalog. Even if you have another set of these concerti, replace them with this set. (break one and ask for an early birthday present). The authenticity of the playing and hearing Mr. Hogwood on the harpsichord makes this a truly memorable listening experience.
