Most of my Bach listening comes under the heading of Period Instruments but there are some recordings such as Milstein's of the solo violin sonatas and partitas which transcend all issues of style. This is one of them.
Joy is the word that springs to mind throughout. Joyous chamber music like playing. Joy at new discovery. Joy at the sublime music making.
There are too many delights to count and whether or not this is what Bach intended (how will we ever know) this is superb musicmaking. Even on that count the string sound is surprisingly bracing and rhythms, especially internal ones, are beautifully sprung. The performers consistently have a ear for Bach's melodies. Even the ubiquitous Air from the 3rd Orchestral Suite is deeply moving.
Mercifully we are beyond arguments about whether this music should be done in period style or not. To adore these recordings is not to advocate a return to this style but rather a celebration of the universal genius of Bach however he is played. Hear both!
"The Busch version of the Brandenburgs must take a special place. Although modern instruments are used, there is greater "authenticity" of spirit than in many rigid modern performances. Rudolf Serkin, Busch's son-in-law, plays the piano, and the other soloists are all artists of comparable calibre, including Evelyn Rothwell on the oboe, Aubrey Brain (father of Dennis) on the horn, George Eskdale on the Bach trumpet and Marcel Moyse on the flute. Though slow movements are not sentimentalized, the phrasing has full expressive warmth, and speeds are almost always slower than we would expect today. That is also true of many of the fast movements, as in the outer movements of Nos. 1 and 6, but with such bouncy, resilient rhythms the results never drag.Read more ›

The reading of his Brandeburgo is one step closer respct my desert island choice (Karl Haas and the London soloists, Westminster LP from the early fifties and never released on CD, by the way.
The Suites are played with such vitality, artictis commitment and overall intensity that will leave you at the border of your seat (In particular the Third Suite)
Both sets are so fabulous that have surpassed by far the test of time to become a genuine treasure, inch by inch.
You should not do without this memorable album.
