About

Harry Newstone, one of the first and best ‘scholar conductors’, recorded his famous set of Brandenburg Concertos with the Hamburg Chamber Orchestra for the SAGA label in 1959. Long seen as highly stylised, particularly with the back drop of performances from the ‘historically informed’ movement, they were, in effect, thoughtful, erudite renditions which introduced a generation of Baroque enthusiasts to these wonderful works. The recordings were so successful that they appeared at the top of the SAGA bestseller list for years. But a CD version has never been available. Heritage has joined forces with KlassicHaus in the US to produce excellent transfers of these classic performances. Informative and engaging notes are provided by Tully Potter.
