Notes & Reviews:

"...Harnnoncourt's fascinating exploratory way with the music: he never treats it simply for what it seems to be but looks more deeply into the score to see if he can bring out something fresh." -Gramophone

DAS ALTE WERK was launched in 1958 with the release of 7" discs of Gregorian chant and music by the medieval French composer Guillamume de Machaut, quickly gaining a reputation for historically informed, high-quality recordings. There soon followed LPs of harpsichord sonatas by Scarlatti, concerti grossi by Handel and partitas for solo violin by Bach. The signing of Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt, Frans Bruggen and Jaap Schroder ushered in a new era
