Notes & Reviews:

Originally recorded in 1991 for Naive, this set of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos is one of the finest in the Bach discography. Savall takes a more lyrical and less frenetic approach than is often found in period-instrument recordings. Now available as a multi-channel SACD, Le Concert des Nations sounds richer and more colorful than ever. And as you have come to expect from Alia Vox, this carefully remastered reissue is offered in a luxurious double digipak with extensive documentation.

"This set of J.S. Bach's six Brandenburg Concertos has the recognizable stamp of Savall and his expert musicians on it, in the energetic pacing, stylish ornamentation, radiant instrumental colors, and the authentic character of the music, which is faithfully conveyed through lively ensemble playing... these hybrid SACDs on Savall's own Alia Vox label make the concertos sound better than ever, with discrete placement of parts in the multichannel recording and incredibly lifelike sound, which focuses on the finest details. Highly recommended." - All Music Guide
