And why is this so much better than Trevor Pinnock's revered 1983 period performance?
It's in the music notes: back then, Bach's ''discipline and order was in awe'' was what Pinnock felt, his 1983 set hypnotic and almost robot like. Fast forward some 25 years later with Pinnock being 60 years old and not 35 years old, he now relishes Bach's ''sense of daring and musical subversion''. which means the music sounds like they are all having fun.
These performances will be incredibly hard to beat having an infectious infusion of technical prowess combined with sheer boyancy for joy of the musical score.
