Although the NAXOS lable usually has a bad quality conotation to it, the "budget brand" of classical recordings sounds great in this complete recording of the Musical Offering. The balance between the instruments is excellent, and the musical interpretation, as well as the technicality are both adequate.

The program notes are interesting and informative. Naxos is usually the cheapest brand you can buy, usually compromising the quality, but not this time- this recording is well-made, and enjoyable.
