 Peter Seivewright piano

Bach’s Concertos for keyboard and chamber orchestra are rightly acknowledged as masterpeices of the genre, and amonmg the first truly great concertos of the Baroque/Early Classical period. They are performed with a wide variety of instrumentation, and here Peter Seivewright plays a modern Steinway Model D grand piano, accompanied by a baroque size ensemble, also using modern instruments, but in the authentic one-to-a-part style. The continuo here is provided, again authentically, by the Spanish guitar, which gives a warmer sound than the more common harpsichord.

“The pianist’s readings are clear, precise and exhibit an admirably cogent structural overview. The Scottish Baroque Soloists is a small chamber group… all the players are sensitive and fully committed to Seivewright’s vision. If you are a fan of these works, you’ll want this disc for your collection”

Michael Cameron - Fanfare

“...[Seivewright] plays these with the full resources of the piano and of human emotion. Emotionless baroque performances are not for him – and not for me! These sound very much the way Mozart piano concertos sounded in the great days of recordings. There are lots of nuances and subtleties, plenty of poetry and expression. Nor do the Scottish Baroque Soloists play on period instruments in strict period style; they are far better than that. Very good sound – not too close-up.”

Donald Vroon  - American Record Guide

"...I should also like to note that the Scottish Baroque Soloists give us just about the most beautiful straight-tone string sound I’ve ever heard."

Lynn René Bayley - Fanfare - March/April 2012
