Bach: The Brandenburg Concertos
Trevor Pinnock, European Brandenburg Ensemble
Trevor Pinnock first recorded the Brandenburg Concertos some twenty-five years ago. This new recording is a product of his deep fascination with Bach’s ground-breaking concertos and in the working process and interaction of musicians in ensemble. Eager
to cut through any narrow conceptions of period style, players from different countries and of different generations were invited to join this new voyage of exploration. In the early eighteenth century there was no fixed concept of the orchestra; these pieces could be performed on single instruments to a part or with parts doubled. This fine recording demonstrates a variety of approaches.
This recording is dedicated to Katherine McGillivray whose playing and presence has
been such an inspiration to her colleagues and friends.
