The suites date from the waning days of monophonic sound. It's big-band Bach, far removed from today's speculative recreations of period style, but also distant from the bloated Bach of the past. Klemperer, fairly lean and objective, still digs deeply into the music. The uncredited flutist in Suite No. 2 is touching. Overture movements here are appropriately grand and, while tempos are moderate (no break-dancing to these dance movements), Klemperer's rhythmic mastery keeps the music flowing. The Philharmonia, at its peak, plays superbly. Handel's Concerto Grosso, Op. 6, No. 4, is beefily affecting and the rest, in stereo, is very attractive, especially the robust Anacreon Overture by Cherubini, a white-hot performance whose horn whoops in the coda will blow you away. --Dan Davis
