Finally the Brandenburg from Alessandrini! Beautiful sound and interesting comments (see the booklet essay and the video feature on the included DVD) aside, the conductor-cembalist manages to make the music sound fresh and exciting with each concerto feeling a bit differently from the next. Never to replace such wonderful recordings such as the Goebel/MAK version, the Concerto Italiano recording nevertheless offers something that is just as genuine and intriquing.
