Reviews

‘Van Beinum was always a fine exponent of the Baroque repertoire and his recordings of Bach’s Four Orchestral Suites are true gems. One luxuriates in the exquisite sounds of the “Badinerie” from Suite No. 2 or the ethereal beauty in the Air from Suite No. 3. The Overtures of the 2nd and 4th Suites are also full of pomp and celebration with the Concertgebouw playing with true conviction.’ www.classical.net
