Quote from: Que on May 19, 2007, 12:07:32 AMTalking with Premont (thanks for the list ) on the Brandenburg Concertos the other day, a thread on Bach's music for chamber orchestra seemed a good idea!I need some new Brandenburgs - what are your favourites?[Snip]Put please post also favourites of the orchestral suites and solo concertos!Q
Quote from: Norbeone on May 19, 2007, 02:04:56 PMFor the Keyboard Concertos, Gould is oustanding. His D Minor and F Minor concertos are particularly splendid.I've heard that Perahia's concertos are great, too.

Quote from: Que on May 19, 2007, 10:20:31 PMFor the Brandenburgs at least one Italian version seems a good idea - hmmm... Fasolis or Alessandrini? For concertos in general, I'm all with Bunny's recommendations of the "Concerts avec plusieurs intruments" series by Café Zimmermann (on Alpha). I hope they'll do some more, three issues is not enough. These include beautiful performances of the reconstructions for oboe (BWV 1053, 1055 and 1060), which is a major attraction for me.I also bought the first volume with Mortensen on cpo, that Bunny pictured - really excellent, when complete it might even supersede Leonhardt in my mind. Similarity in approach too. For the violin concertos I have only one favourite - haven't heard any recording that could match it to date! The one and only, and still easily available - grab it!Q

Quote from: Bunny on May 20, 2007, 07:46:02 AMI also have the Kuijken recordng on the Denon label (with a different cover), but don't give it as much play because the sound quality is very dated and the deficiencies are very apparent on my speakers. The volume has to be bumped up and some distortion sets in. I wonder if that's because of the mastering or just the result of early digital recording technology; I do think of updating the recording every so often.
