Dunedin Consort - J.S. Bach: Violin Concertos - Classic FM
Album of the WeekThe Dunedin Consort already has a great reception for its Bach performances and this highly anticipated new recording is certain to please fans, and create new ones. Dutch-Italian violinist Cecilia Bernardini takes a break from her duties as leader of the ensemble to deliver stellar performances that draw out all the lyricism, wit and exuberance of Bach's writing. Bach's concerto for violin and oboe is joyful and colourful, with a supremely lyrical central movement. Two of Bach's solo violin concertos, overflow with intricate and pin sharp detail and the famous, sublime slow movement of Bach's Double Concerto has never been more heartrending.
