Comments:Jan Hanford said:

The Bach Edition by Brilliant Classics is one of the most incredible collections ever released. This volume, The Chamber Works, is an exquisite recording of outstanding performances of all Bach's instrumental works. It is delightful to have such a collection all in one place and at a such extraordinarily inexpensive price.

There are many unusual treasures here, not usually recorded, such as The Notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach and the Canons. The performances are excellent throughout, as is the sound. Highly recommended to new and experienced listeners alike.
