Bach: Brandenburg Concertos - Dunedin Consort

A lively new take on Bach's timeless concertos. Classic FM Drive Featured Album, 2 September 2013.

Bach 's six Brandenburg Concertos are among the essential works from the Baroque era. For their first instrumental release, the Dunedin Consort bring a fresh and insightful new reading to the works.

The Consort has established a formidable reputation as one of the leading exponents of historical performance in the UK. Under the direction of Bach specialist John Butt, they have won acclaim for their approach, shining new light onto some of the best known pieces of the repertoire.

Their version of the Brandenburgs is, as could be expected, insightful, lithe and crisp, full of dancing rhythms.
