  Bach: Brandenburg Concertos 1-3 / Koopman, Amsterdam Baroque

Conductor: Ton Koopman
Performer: Wilbert Hazelzet, Ton Koopman, et al.
Ensemble: Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra
Wea/Atlantic/Erato - #16163 / October 29, 1996

After about half a dozen years in limbo, Ton Koopman's marvelous 1983 readings with the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra are back on the shelf at mid-price, though still on two single discs. The accent in these elegant, flowing performances is on variety--in the texture, in the ornamentation, and in matters of phrasing and articulation. The executants' voicing of the counterpoint is quite effective, as is their pointing of rhythm, which underscores the fact that so much of this music comes from the dance.

Conductor: Gustav Leonhardt
Performer: Gustav Leonhardt
Ensemble: Orchestra
Sony Classics - #63188 / August 19, 1997

The pairing on this disc is wonderful: Bach's greatest harpsichord concerto and one of his son's own works in the same key--a clear tribute to his father's masterpiece. This is also the best ever performance of Bach's greatest harpsichord concerto. Gustav Leonhardt simply sets perfect tempos--detail registers with ideal clarity, yet he keeps the music pressing inexorably forward. He has also selected an instrument with a penetrating but exceptionally lovely sound, and it's all captured on a...Read more
