Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

A new spin on the familiar, as the Concerto Ko¨ln have again incorporated new perspectives on preexisting ideas into Bach's compendium of Baroque orchestral literature. To that end, here, as with their recording of the orchestral suites, the ensemble chose the low tuning pitch of a1 = 392 Hz for their recording of the Brandenburg Concertos. As to the "Fiauti d'Echo" called for in No. 4, a newly constructed "double flute" possibly known to Bach is the answer. Another particularity is in the use of differing and specific modern replica harpsichords as well as use of the violone.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Overall the musicians of Concerto Köln are very good, especially the winds and brass; and the string players are also in general very proficient. Mayumi Hariasaki, who plays the violino piccolo in the first concerto. Among recent recordings, I would recommend John Eliot Gardiner's (Mar/Apr 2010) as the most consistently enjoyable.
