After listening to this recording, one would simply feel the pity that Mr. Caputi does not transcribe the other 4 Brandenburg concertos to release the whole set. Mr. Caputi's colorful transcription and skillful performance, in concert with BNL's genuine recording philosophy, make this recording all but perfect. The transcriptions brings a new perspective to Bach's well-done job and, while listening, one could feel almost the same harmony of the original instrumentation by Bach. Give this recording a try, and you would find a new way to approach this brilliant work.
