Performance:   Sonics:  
Wow - I bought this on the strength of a couple of reviews and was frankly not expecting all that much as the group was unknown to me. More fool me, therefore, to find what is absolutely spectacular playing here. There is real fire in these performances, and the solo playing is quite something to behold, from all featured instrumentalists. It would be tempting to say the recording is a fraction over-the-top, as it sounds huge when played reasonably loudly, and these instruments really don't sound quite like that unless you are in a small room with them alone. That said, it would be churlish to criticize, or to even downgrade a star, as that would diminish the discovery that these performances are. If you like your Bach fast and intoxicatingly exciting, this is the disc for you. Even those somewhat more timid will hear things here they have never heard before in these (supposed) warhorses. Thrilling stuff!
