Notes & Reviews:

Personnel: Judy Loman (harp); Alexander Jablokov, Takako Nishizaki (violin); Karl Kaiser , Nora Shulman (flute); Jenö Jandó (piano); Bob van Asperen (harpsichord); Bertalan Hock, Wolfgang Rubsam (organ).

A wonderful introduction to the world of Bach, this concise set features some of the composer's slower (but no less stirring) movements done by mostly European orchestras. The recording quality is top-notch, and if these aren't always famous ensembles, they're no less skilled or gifted. A nice set. ~ Steve Leggett
