Different Approach to Bach 21 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Wispelwey's approach to this music is valid, and his sound is uniformly excellent. However, his treatments of these preludes and dances are a little quirky for my taste in terms of rhythmic organization, and Wispelwey's approach tends to remain on the surface of the music. If you want an excellent, straightforward version, the references by Casals and Fournier provide better alternatives. However, if you are looking for a different approach and tend to like your Bach light and sprightly rather than dark and meditative, then this may be the album for you. Excellent sound.

Superb though perhaps not to everyone's taste 26 Oct. 2006
By Boko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a less clinical recording than, say, the Yo Yo Ma extravaganza or Mischa Maisky, and you can hear more of Wispelwey both in the complexity of the performance and literally - there are audible exhalation or exertion. For me, this captures the malleability of the suites and Wispelwey's gift while not obscuring their brilliance.

ML in Littleton, CO 26 Nov. 2002
By ML - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The recording is excellent! Great attention to detail and
style with appropriate performance pracitces including the
use of the actual instruments for which they were composed.
It is nice to know that a recording is available of Bach's violoncello suites as Bach, himself, would have expected them
to be played!

Strange articulations but it's a fun listen 12 April 2011
By M. Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Wispelwey's approach to articulation and rhythm is, in a word, unusual. This is most pronounced in the Prelude of the E-flat suite, but it's there in all of the suites.

For traditionalists, it's easy to be offended by what appears to be a flippant attempt at being "different."

But it's a difference that really works! We have all heard the canonical recordings: Casals, Rostropovich, Ma... But in Wispelwey's hands, these suites "swing" in a way that I've never heard before. The pieces take on a whole new reality, and I really, truly appreciate that. I can hear notes that never popped out at me before, and rhythmic complexities that give me (yet again) a newfound appreciation for how progressive Bach was (and is).

I would definitely recommend this as part of your library of Bach Cello suites. However, I wouldn't recommend it as your only version.
