Summary:

Trevor Pinnock is one of the most distinguished musicians of our time, an artist whose groundbreaking approach to baroque music has resulted in some of the best-selling recordings of the 20th century. Jonathan Manson is one of the most celebrated period instrument practioners of the new generation, a member of the award-winning viol quartet Phantasm and principle cellist of the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra. Put these two musicians together to perform the music of J.S. Bach, and the results are simply spellbinding.
