BACH, J.S.: Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 1-6 (Swiss Baroque Soloists) (Naxos: 8.557755-56)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The group of six orchestral works known as the Brandenburg Concertos, commissioned by and dedicated to the Margrave of Brandenburg, are among the greatest works of Johann Sebastian Bach. These are consummate examples of the art of Baroque composition, frequently using groups of solo instruments in a more complex and virtuoso fashion than ever before. The 'Concerto No. 5', with its prominent and dazzling harpsichord part, is almost a Harpsichord Concerto in its own right.

Performed on period instruments by the Swiss Baroque Soloists, directed by Andr?®s Gabetta and Niklas Eklund:

\The two familiar works here are the trumpet concertos by Haydn and Hummel, but the performances buff them up like new, with amazing playing from the young Swedish trumpeter Niklas Eklund, and orchestral support that has grace and lithe, interesting texture." 'The Telegraph' on Haydn/Hummel/Neruda (8.554806)"
