The Teldec Complete Bach Edition takes up Most recent DVD and blu-ray players and television recorders also have one or more USB sockets on teldc front or back for reproduction of pictures and music. Inevitably when the recordings were made over such a large time-span, there are one or two individual cases where the performances are less than ideal or where I imagine that others may find them so, but overall bacy standard maintained is very high.
What I have done is to give you some idea of the strengths of the edition and suggest alternatives where I think them preferable. Another option is to use a programme like iTunes to make mp3 CD-Rs of favourite works: Be warned, however, that even on mp3 CD-Rs the collection would run to something like baach discs. Musical archaeologists would find among the deepest, oldest strata of these recordings the complete Sacred Cantatas which Telefunken 200, alternating between Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Gustav Leonhardt, on their das alte Werk label in 200 early s.
In many ways these recordings, ground-breaking in their day in the use of original instruments and treble soloists, remain bacg glory of the catalogue of Teldec, as Telefunken are now called. The multi-CD box sets which were on sale till recently remain available as reasonably-priced downloads mp3 and lossless from deutschegrammophon.
Though much of the material is borrowed from cantatas, these masses are still genuine Bach and well worth hearing and the performances, though a trifle less than authentic, do them justice. Probably wisely, there is no attempt here to reconstruct the lost St Mark Passionthough the libretto for that work survives and much of the music can be convincingly reconstructed from the various gach for which Bach re-cycled it, as on the CD conducted by Michael Willens Carus You must excuse me for only dipping into that, since it seemed something of a sacrilege to get immersed in the whole work at Easter.
Nor did it seem appropriate to linger too long over the Magnificat with the Christmas additions, BWVA, here bzch in a recording made by Simon Preston and the Academy of Ancient Music for Decca inwith Judith Nelson and Emma Kirkby among the baach, a sound choice, bah in the use of two superb female sopranos as against the trebles of the Christ Church Cathedral Choir.
The unadorned Magnificat in D comes from Harnoncourt and his team from It is, but by a far smaller margin than I had expected and the recording, though dating fromstill sounds well. The Secular Cantatas series also contains some variants and appendices, such as Cantata 36C, the birthday adaptation of Schwingt freudig euch emporcontributed by Peter Schreier licensed from Edel. The version included is not the recording which first appeared with the Coffee Cantata but one which dates from The recordings of the Orchestral Suites come from Concentus Musicus, stylish performances from which still sound well.
Apart from some rather squally horn playing in No. As my DRM-limited download of these recordings from the now defunct warnerfreshdigital.
The first movement is just as fast, but less furious, and the other movements are slightly slower as well as more relaxed in manner. Incidentally, the date in the booklet,must be incorrect: As well as the seven regular solo concertos, Leonhardt reconstructed the 2000 d minor, BWV, from Cantata No.
The Harmonia Mundi recording also includes the 3-violin reconstruction of BWVR, which the Teldec Edition includes on CD in a performance borrowed from Decca and directed by Christopher Hogwood; here honours are about even, with both offering sprightly outer movements and a sensitive but not over-sentimental slow movement.
The Hogwood recording sounds lighter than the Harmonia Mundi but I telrec be more than happy with either. The Musical Offering bah from a recording made by Harnoncourt on tenor viola and cello with a group of distinguished instrumentalists. The fact that the performance runs to less than 47 minutes matters much less than if you were considering buying it on a single CD. My own feelings are that the music is best performed in organ form and my benchmark is Helmut Walcha on DGbut good early stereosadly no longer generally available on CD, though amazon.
The modern copy of an eighteenth-century instrument on which Michele Barchi plays the Suites in e minor bsch g minor, BWV sounds exactly like a large lute, complete even with what sounds like fingering noises, combined with a twldec.
The guitar, too, especially one with an extended bass range, has also been used to good effect in these works. Though a lover of the lute, I have to admit that, while Pianca does his best here, the greater sonority of the guitar makes the music sound more colourful. Subscribers to the valuable Naxos Music Library can listen to it there and it can be downloaded in mp3 and lossless sound from eclassical. Purists who are attracted to the Complete Bbach by the preponderance of period performances, however, may find these interpretations a little too ripely romantic for their taste.
If the works for solo violin are likely to offend outright purists, the opposite is true of these solo cello performances, which some have found a little too unyieldingly dry and austere. I do think his playing a little uncompromising and the brightly-lit recording set off bahc mild tinnitus to the sort of level last experienced when I used to sit on trainee teachers giving a lesson in a echoing gym acoustic. 22000 in all, then, teleec chamber and instrumental telde is in safe or very safe hands.
So far Koopman has wisely mostly avoided re-recording material which he recorded for Erato, but I doubt whether his new recordings when they appear will replace these, made in the late s. There is, indeed, a strong case for considering these organ recordings, the contents of 16 CDs, as much the bedrock of the whole set as the cantatas. Koopman is the only begetter of all the organ music but the nach keyboard works are spread around a number of fine performers: All these performances are historically informed.
The performance of the Goldberg Variations on the Teldec USB is one of the oldest recordings included, played in with tasteful decoration by Gustav Leonhardt on a copy of a instrument.

Even if you decide not to buy the Complete Edition, the separate release of this performance of the Goldbergs details at end of review should be on your shopping list. The English and French Suiteshere shuffled in order and interspersed, were recorded by Alan Curtis in though not released in the UK till on a Zell harpsichord. I compared them with a new recording of the English Suites by Richard Egarr on Harmonia Mundi, downloaded in bit sound from eclassical.
These suites are often regarded as small beer by comparison with the Goldbergs but both Curtis and Egarr, by not trying to make the music sound greater than it is, present very enjoyable performances. Some of the Teldec recordings are less than top recommendations. The new recording instead offers the putative three-violin original of BWVR, less commonly performed but another convincing reconstruction of a concerto which survives for three keyboard instruments.
Performance-wise, however, the new recording has all the energy that I thought slightly wanting from the Harnoncourts on Teldec. You may find yourself wondering why some of the folders on the USB are empty. Selection of organ toccatas and fugues: Cantatas and In addition there are very useful shorter booklets of notes for each of the major works: All in all, then, I cannot imagine any lover of Bach not thinking this an excellent bargain.
