Solid Performance makes this Superb Value

Proceeding from Bach’s tenure in Cothern, this composer’s three surviving violin concertos (1041-1043) are performed on this disc as well as reconstructions of 1064, 1044 and two other violin concertos as well as Concerto for Violin and Oboe.
This is strong performance by the strings as well as flutist Beznosiuk, oboeist Robson and harpsichordist Nicholson. Under the direction of Wallfisch, this is organized around Vivaldi’s three-movement system, but Bach breathes additional life in the pieces with the notable smoothness of the melodic lines as well as more substantive string parts.
1042 is extremely well interpreted with its overlaying bass line coming through impressively. Fond also of the Double Concerto and the oboe and harpshichord work.
This is great value set showing strong Italian influence upon Bach.
