Notes & Reviews:

This is a superbly recorded, magnificent account of Bach's concertos and symphonies for oboe with Holliger dazzling, and improving himself, yet again, as a unrivalled player of this instrument. It should delight all admirers of Bach and the baroque oboe and is a wonderful account of Heinz Holliger which permits a real group understanding. Eric Hobarth's exemplary violin, and superb ECM sound and we have here a special event! Holliger has recorded prolifically for ECM's New Series, but this is his first disc for the label since recording Zelenka in 1999 which addresses core classical repertoire, and these very popular pieces will surely find broad public and critical response.

"This gloriously enjoyable recording, released with an ECM disc of recent Holliger vocal and chamber works, offers “reclamations” for oboe and string orchestra of Bach works familiar in other guises, yet originally cast for the instrument. The C minor work well known as a double harpsichord concerto is really, Holliger and modern scholarship contend, one for oboe and violin (Erich Höbarth), and sounds marvellous in that form here." -Sunday Times

"His tone may not be quite as fulsome as once it was, but the elegance and intelligence of his playing remain peerless, and the qualities that made him the greatest oboist of the 20th century are obvious as ever." -The Guardian

"The disc’s subtitle — “Ich Hatte Viel Bekümmernis” (“I Had Much Affliction”), the title of a Bach cantata from which a sinfonia is drawn here — seems to relate to its dedication to the memory of a brother and a friend of Heinz Holliger’s, who both died last year. Much of the music — a concerto by Alessandro Marcello (later adapted by Bach) and Bach instrumental pieces — is lively; it is all lovely, and beautifully and knowingly performed by the veteran Mr. Holliger and his colleagues." -New York Times
