New Bach CD is out!
A new installment of Helsinki Baroque Orchestra’s recording series of Bach’s harpsichord concertos has been released. This third volume includes concertos for two harpsichords, played by Aapo Häkkinen and Pierre Hantaï. The recording is produced by the noted German record company AEOLUS.
The earlier volumes in the series were enthusiastically received:
Bach, vol. 1
These performances are enjoyable, even thrilling. In the rip-roaring Italian Concerto that rounds off the disc (…) the harpsichord achieves almost organ-like fullness. Wow!
Lindsay Kemp, Gramophone, 3/2013
Bach, vol. 2
One of the true delights is the beautiful phrasing of the upper strings – Bach’s part-writing rarely gets this kind of exposure.
