This cd is briliant! Yo Yo Ma's interpretation of these popular solo cello suite's shows real artistry. His playing is so emotive and thoughtful, his sarabande from the first suite is so special and full of emotion. The popular prelude to the first suite in G is played with Yo Yo Ma's usual fine, full tone. He really does make his cello sing and his technique and accuracy is as always, inspiring. A brilliant recording, a real must for any classical music lover whether inexperienced or expert. Buy it now

I bought this same Sony recording of Yo Yo Mah performing the Bach Suites over a decade ago and chose it over Rostropovich and Casals which I also have, as a present for my niece because it is technically 'newer' than the others. However, I cannot say that it is a superior performance over R and C. The Bach Cello Suites to my mind are nonpareil, a strictly personal opinion.

yo yo ma shows his considerable talent in this rendition. The playing is robust and clean, yet sensitive and delicate in the quieter movements. Some I already knew and loved, others were new to me, but now they are all old friends.

As a cellist, Yo-Yo Ma is a huge inspiration to me. The Bach Suites are my favourite classical piece of music for the cello, and Mr Ma plays them magically. There's no way I could give this anything less than 5/5!

No one better than Yo-Yo at the solo Bach - superb tone, strong and delicate at the same time - stunning and deeply moving.

This is an absolutely superb version of the Bach Cello Suites. The intonation is flawless throughout, the tonal quality beautiful and the interpretation often gives a fresh insight into these familiar works. The recording quality is of an extremely high satandard.

Wonderful clear vital interpretations from a master who can go head to head with the Rostropovich recording

This is cracking music. No, I'm fibbing. Should not describe grand stuff inspired by Bach and played by a virtuoso (Mr Yo-Yo Ma) as cracking. A friend with a pointy head when it comes to these things said the word is sublime. All I know is I painted the whole interior of a house with this as a soundtrack and it made those brush strokes just dabb themselves like angels on fire. Now, when I have to drive around regional New South Wales (think kangaroos, gallahs and big, dusty trucks) I play this because it is soothing and stops me shouting at other driver's stupidity while not being so concerned about my own (stupidity and driving I mean). Of course the man is a genius. Everything he twangs with his cello sound pretty tasty. But this is a two CD dose of heaven.
