Bach, J S: Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 1-6 BWV1046-1051 (complete)

Hamburger Kammerorchester, Harry Newstone

CD - 2 discs


In stock - usually despatched within 1 working day.

Harry Newstone, one of the first and best ‘scholar conductors’, recorded his famous set of Brandenburg Concertos with the Hamburg Chamber Orchestra for the SAGA label in 1959. Long seen as highly stylised, particularly with the back drop of performances from the ‘historically informed’ movement, they were, in effect, thoughtful, erudite renditions which introduced a generation of Baroque enthusiasts to these wonderful works. The recordings were so successful that they appeared at the top of the SAGA bestseller list for years. But a CD version has never been available. Heritage has joined forces with KlassicHaus in the US to produce excellent transfers of these classic performances. Informative and engaging notes are provided by Tully Potter.

“Tempos here are extremely well judged...Under Newstone the buoyancy of the playing, especially in the first movement of the Third Concerto...makes a favourable impression and I love the prominent double-bass sonority in the Sixth Concerto...Although occasionally a little cramped, the sound comes up remarkably well, certainly considering the date and the vinyl sources used.”
