Notes & Reviews:

In November 2010, Concerto Köln celebrates their 25th anniversary. Yet with the ensemble sounding so fresh and dynamic, it's a milestone that seems quite extraordinary! Now, in the wake of their recent successes with Handel's Water Music and the discovery of the Rigel Symphonies (Echo Klassik Award), Concerto Köln has come up with a further large-scale Baroque project: J.S. Bach's four Orchestral Suites. The vitality of the performance surrenders none of its subtlety, intelligently reproducing Bach's perfectly balanced structures.

"each of these invigorating works springs with balletic suavity and a ready instinct for gesture; embellishments are always exquisitely judged and speeds often surprising in the quixotic juxtaposition of fast and very fast." - Gramophone

"Concerto Köln makes its mark among a host of recordings through the players' meticulous attention to detail - new subtleties struck me at each repeated listening...It's invidious to pick a high spot, but I've never enjoyed the First Suite more, ideally balanced in both engineering and playing...this is a first-rate set from beginning to end." -BBC Music*****

"There's a preference for fast speeds and transparent textures, but never any breathless rush. Instead, what Concerto Köln has achieved here is a revitalizing sense of dance...These immensely engaging performances feel entirely 'right' in the dance movements, above all because they are played as real (or at least stylized) dances rather than as titles for abstract movements." -International Record Review
