Lamon's mid 90's Brandenburgs are tasteful, fresh and forthright. The recorder playing is a delight. Performance **** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine, Oct'12

This is a sumptuous repackaging of quite an elderly, but brilliant, recording, made in 1994 by the long-established Tafelmusik; I have a copy on a long-deleted Sony release Six Brandenburg Concertos (Tafelmusik), and the original release is still available from time-to-time, here Bach: The Brandenburg Concertos. As far as I can ascertain the band, Tafelmusik, has decided to take control of its own releases, both old and new, something becoming a common solution to marketing in today's difficult economic environment for classical recordings.

An old "Penguin Guide" rather liked the Tafelmusik set, and I happen to think it is one of the most satisfying "authentic" sets of these lovely old warhorses. As the "Penguin Guide" said:-

"Tafelmusik seldom disappoint, and their set of "Brandenburgs" is enjoyably robust and spontaneous, if inevitably not always as polished as the best versions on modern instruments (try here Bach: Brandenburg Concertos, Violin Concertos, for one of those). Many will find this more infectious than Pinnock (here, Bach: Brandenburg Concertos; Orchestral Suites - I have always found this lauded recording rather lame, although Pinnock's more recent recording, here,

I already owned two sets of the Brandenburgs with period instruments in digital sound, and I was very happy with them. I doubt that I would have picked up this one had it not been on sale for under $6.00(!!) in my local independent music store. I'm glad I did. It's every bit as fine as the OAE with Huggett et. al on Virgin Veritas, and is every bit as good as Jordi Savall's Hesperion group's more recent recording. This one, from 1993-94, also digitally recorded, sounds best of the three on my Bose headphones. It has a bit more presence and warmth than the OAE recording, and it makes the sound of Savall and co. seem a bit over-ripe. But I have to emphasize -- these are all fine recordings and nobody need feel bad about owning them. The leader of Tafelmusik (a Canadian group), Jeanne Lamon, takes all the solo violin work here, while on the OAE recording, Monica Huggett splits duties with Alison Bury and Elizabeth Wallfisch -- but that's not a problem: they're all fine. The engineers give a particularly lovely sheen to Lamon's sound, however -- and where the Tafelmusik sound really scored, I thought, was in the harpsichord solo section in the opening movement of No.5 -- just perfectly placed in the aural picture, for my tastes. And I want to single out one particularly effective performance -- Tafelmusik's No. 3. It just got my attention in a way that no other account quite has done -- exhilaration all round!
