Trevor Pinnock & Royal Academy of Music - Bach: Partitas - Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist

The distribution of contrapuntal lines across multiple wind and string parts – not to mention the use of modern instruments – creates a completely different sonic experience from what one has when the music is played on the keyboard (especially the harpsichord) ... there’s no questioning the skill and taste that Oehler and Pinnock have brought to bear, or the restrained virtuosity of the musicians. Any library supporting a curriculum in orchestration should be especially interested in this recording.
