Description

Diego Fasolis and his ensemble ''I Barocchisti'' have been acclaimed from the press many times as one of the best ensemble for ancient music. Statements like ''Simply a terrific recording'' (American Record Guide for ARTS 47573-2 Bach – Motetes) and ''These two recordings (ARTS 47694-2 Bach Psalm 51 and ARTS 47695-2 Bach Cantatas) confirm the places of Diego Fasolis and the ensemble I Barocchisti among those musicians who really count.'' (Le Monde de la Musique) encouraged us to promptly release another recording from this ensemble.

This time Diego Fasolis and his Ensemble present Bach's Suites Nos. 1 – 4, that the composer himself called ''overtures''. They were used as opening for several events such as celebrations, operas, orchestral concerts or cantatas. The Suites came to existence by a staccato rhythm, the succession of a quick, a slow and again a quick movement and a festive character. To them different dance tunes were added for concerts and dances and thus created suites.

We are very happy to present this splendid recording as an original ARTS authentic release and with crystal clear 24 bit / 96 kHz technique on Hybrid SACD.

resmusica.com (02.02.2007)


"L'ensemble est aéré, tonique, délicat et offre à entendre la richesse de timbre de l'œuvre. Difficile de trouver version qui régate avec celle livrée ici......ce disque contribue peut-être plus authentiquement à renouveler l'approche des Suites orchestrales de Bach. Exemplaire!"

"The ensemble is tonic, delicate and brilliant and let you perceive the timbric richness of the works. It is difficult to find a version that could match this one...This SACD really contribute to renew the approach to Bach's Suites. Exemplary!"
