Donald R Vroon
American Record Guide, September 2012

Here are all seven harpsichord concertos published under Bach’s name, plus someone’s arrangement of an eighth, based on a few bars Bach wrote out. It seems to have been an oboe concerto originally, and it has a lovely Siciliano middle movement—with oboe.

It is needless to praise this team, Kipnis and Marriner. They recorded these from 1967 to 1970, and the style is very appealing. They are not heavy, but they are not light and airy and insubstantial the way later recordings would be. Kipnis does not play like a machine and according to rules; he is an artist. Listen to how much better Bach sounds this way than the way he is played now.

The sound is excellent… © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online
