There's a more recent version from the Kuijken brothers. It's available as a DVD and the videos can be sampled on YouTube.



I have seen this in a store in Beijing. I will get it tomorrow!
Do what I must do, and let what must happen happen.

Not correct.  I was at your site and was very enthusiastic about the work.  The problem is not that the music is bland or that it's hard to find excellent recordings.  The problem is you.

And who are you over there may I ask? No 'excellent recordings' have been presented in that topic so far. But clearly you missed out on the back-room discussion in the Officers' Mess prior to the topic's creation. Why do you think it was left to me to create the topic?  ::)

But I was totally serious, even the Bach fans at my site are rather unenthusiastic about this piece.

And I'm totally serious: this says nothing about the BWV 1079, and everything about the small sampling of the population at your site.

Take Webern, now.  Sure, O Corkster, sure:  He must have elected to create a novel orchestration of the Ricercar a 6, because it was such commonplace music.

Bulldog's post contradicts that notion Dave. You are a member too so that makes three of us!

Who in God's name cares about Webern?? And I don't in any case consider such arrangements. Often Bach fans speak of such things is if they were Bach's own.

And who are you over there may I ask?

The same person that I am on this site; I take myself wherever I go.

The main point is that you like to make it sound as if hardly anyone likes the Musical Offering, an opinion that is clearly bogus.

Thread duty:

I have a few recordings of it but I want to see if I can do better, any great suggestions for this one? Thanks in advance.

In 1949-50, Igor Markevich worked up a realization for three orchestral groups & solo quartet;  I always enjoy listening to this recording.

— And I realize now, thanks to the Corkster, that Markevich would have done this for any commonplace music LOLOLOLOLOLOL

Of course there's no Bulldog over there; it's just a screen name I use on this site.  I make a few postings on your site under my real name that I can't reveal for national security reasons. ;D

I like the Jordi Savall's recording.

People looking for better recordings of this music are commonplace, I've seen topics like this at every CM forum, all to no avail. I suggest there will never be a real solution because the music itself is rather commonplace, something that people seem reticent to accept.
