Product Notes

Bach: Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 1, 2 & 5 by Karl Richter and His Chamber Orchestra of Europe The six Brandenburg Concertos, first printed in 1721, represent relatively early works in Bach's canon. All were probably compiled, at least in their early versions, by 1717, when he took the post of Cappelmeister in Cothen. Every one of the concertos is a masterpiece of sustained invention that tears up the conventions of the standard concerto grosso form both in terms of harmonic complexity and professional virtuosity. The disc presents three of the concertos, No. 's 1, 2 and 5, led by the great conductor, choirmaster and organist Karl Richter (1926-1981), who was for a time, like Bach before him, organist of the Leipzig Thomaskirche. This is the first of his recordings, released in 1958.
