Customer Reviews

The "Bach" truly stops here!

A Uniquely hotblooded and articulate take on J.S.Bach's Famed Brandenburgs, Orchestral suites, and other chamber works. For the most part they seem to be performed on period authentic instruments, from the open sounded french horns to the woody timbred oboes and flauto traversi. A breed apart from the bigger is better approach to Baroque chamber works. Again, a truly great recording.

Stelar Performance

Musica Antiqua Koln is an oustanding ensemble since they perform with perfect articulation and balance on their authentic period insturments. I find their style to be very enjoyable to listen to. This album is somewhat a sampler of baorque music. The orchestral suites are an example of the dance suites that were popular in the day. The chamber music demonstrate the baorque style of "mutliple voices", meaning 2+ instuments play meolodies at the same time. The ones for flute and viola da gamba are especially appealing. Reinhard Goebel takes a unique appraoch to the Bardnenburg Concertos that is good to say the least. I agree that he conducts them with fast tempos, but the none of the insturments never get sueaky or try to outshine another, and I can feel alot of emotion in them, a quality that many other recordings lack. This album also includes the "triple concerto" BWV 1044", a lone flute partita BWV 1013, and the fifth orchestral suite (dance suite) that many alums do not include. Overall, an excellent performance of some of Bach's famous and lesser known works at a great price.


Formed: 1973

Genre: Classical

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Reinhard Goebel founded Musica Antiqua Köln in 1973. The ensemble devoted itself to playing Baroque music on period instruments, with a particular penchant for playing neglected or overlooked repertoire. Many of their best albums have sold well without featuring music by well-known composers. These releases also appear to have boosted the (posthumous) careers of composers such as Heinichen, with their concerti album from 1993, and the Veracini Overture album from 1994. Goebel has not only shown courage...
