Format: Audio CD
If (A) your partner is a goose-stepping period practice fascist (B) you have loaded up on their life insurance and (C) it is time to 'move 'em out - rawhide!' - this disc is mandatory.

Four Steinways - One Hamburg Philharmonic - Three Keyboard Virtuosos - One former Chancellor of West Germany. It's a potent mixture. It could have been one of the travesties of recording history. Happily, this disc has never gone out of circulation (it was recorded in February 1985) and the reasons are self-evident.

Such be the calibre of these musicians, they defy the weight of this array to deliver performances that are pellucid, dramatic and highly listenable. My other reviewers are damned right to hone in on the C Major and the slow movement of the D Minor: the former in particular is radiant with a Bachian joie de vivre.

I have never felt the need to supplement this disc with those dreary performances from the likes of Trevor Pinnock et al.

The Coroner is no fool. You do not want to spend the next twenty years in the Big House with Bobo and Bubba ("Hello to the bottom bunk"). Purchasing this disc would be the perfect crime - under such circumstances, it should come with a body-bag. Alternatively, you may just want to fall further in love with Johann Sebastian Bach. Wonderful stuff.

Not 5 stars because the approach taken by these musicians will not be to every ones taste. I liked it's elegance and poise without caprice.

I see that this rendition of Bach's keyboard concertos has garnered praise from some reviewers on the Amazon.com site.

First of all let me say I am not against Deutsche Grammophon (DGG) in general. The house style of lush orchestration usually with the late Von Karajan conducting and matching smooth production is fine with me. I know that this type of playing and production has perhaps become unfashionable especially when applied to baroque composers but I find many traditional orchestral renditions of Bach to be perfectly fine.

All the same I am afraid I cannot recommend this CD. Yes, it is a bit of a curiosity item featuring as it does a former West German Chancellor on piano and I did enjoy it the first few times that I listened to it but the enjoyment was quite short lived. This production is like a very rich cake and it quickly becomes too much of a good thing. The orchestral performance is verging on a parody of the DGG sound in its over the top lushness. The natural baroque tempo of the allegro movements is stultified by ponderous 19th. century romantic renditions of the pieces and there is an apparent absence of interplay between soloists and orchestra.

In addition the sound engineering at least on the CD format is curiously flat. I recently upgraded my CD player and stereo amplifier and I have noticed substantial improvements in the reproduction from many of my CDs. Not so this CD, it sounds no worse but not any better either. Some vinyl era recording suffer in transfer to compact disc but I see that this recording from 1985 was a digital mastering in the first place so that excuse cannot be made in this case.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the finest recording I have of these Concertos 15 Nov. 2014

I have been listening to Bach for maybe 50 years. I have and have had many recordings of his works. This is the finest recording I have of these Concertos.

I think the finest recording I have ever heard (I mean of all the media - vinyl; 5 in. tape; 10 in. tape; cassette; CD; DVD) is the tracks 07-09 Concerto in A- BWV 1065. A masterpiece.
