1974 3LP Promo Label With Insert Housed In Cloth-Bound Box. All Three LPs Appear New, Unplayed. Small Split In Inside Front Cover Of Box. Raymond Leppard Conducting The English Chamber Orchestra With Andrew Davis, Philip Ledger And Blandine Verlet. “Raymond Leppard Plays In And Directs All Nine Concertos On These Discs And The Result Is Wholly Delightful. The Solo Instruments Are Unusually Well Balanced, Being Audible Without Ever Sounding As Though They Were Being Artificially Assisted, And The Orchestra Contributes A Great Deal To The Buoyancy Of The Performances. First Movements Often Sound More Cheerful Than Usual, For Instance In The Charming Concerto In A, And Sometimes Rather Faster Than Usual As In The F Minor And C Minor. I Myself Prefer A Graver Approach To The Latter, And The Slow Movement As Played Here Does Sound Rather Superficial And Inexpressive If You've Just Been Listening To The Violin And Oboe 'Original' As I Had; Which Is Largely Why I Prefer The 'Original'. All Four Harpsichordists Show Excellent Technique And They Have A Riotous Time In The Exuberant Vivaldi Arrangement. No Tricksy Modern Changes Of Registration, I Am Happy To Report, Except That In This Work There Is A Crescendo In The Slow Movement Which Was Quite Beyond The Capabilities Of The Instruments When Bach's Sons Gave The First Performance (This Is Not My Guess). But These Really Are Delightful Records Of Delightful Music, Very Well Played, Well Balanced And Realistically Recorded. Strongly Recommended. “ R. F. Gramophone.
