In my review of Rilling's recording of Suites 3 + 4 (Hänssler 98.978), I commented, "I can't imagine a better Bach ensemble that this one. Using modern instruments, they produce an other-worldly sound of incredible beauty. Rilling's band is energetic, light-footed, and filled with joyous wonder at the glory of this magnificent music." This release is every bit as delightful as the earlier one. If you already have that disc, you won't need my recommendation to acquire this one. On the other hand, if you haven't yet taken the plunge, don't hesitate to purchase both.
