5.0 out of 5 stars Casals' Bach
Casals intrerprets Bach with great depth and sensitivity; his seriousness and use of colour suit Bach's writing and sonorities; the unaccompanied cello suites are some of the greatest in the cello repertoire, and this is a great recording of them. Suites no. 1, 2 are very beautiful; 3, 5 complex and exciting; 4, 6 technically demanding and dark.

1.0 out of 5 stars No lyricism at all
brilliant technical playing, very aggressive, no soul whatsoever, completely lacks the maturity and delight of the Yo Yo Ma version

5.0 out of 5 stars the best version of suites for sollo cello, 23 Jan 2013
Cello is my favourite instrument and I especially like this wonderful piece by Bach.
I am not an expert or a musician but, after listening to seven or eight different versions of
the "Suites for Solo Cello", I think this one is the best in terms of quality of sound and beauty
of performance. I still need to check a new Pablo Casals cd recently released by ZYX.

Artists such as Torleif Thedeen are genuine artists whose contribution to music is more important
than the contribution of more celebrated cellists who are more in the limelight just because they are media savvy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classics, 19 Sep 2003

This review is from: Bach/6 Cello Suites (Audio CD)
This is simply one of the great recordings. If you are at all about this music, you'll be transported. Never mind the limitations of the sound, or the technical imperfections - no-one ever got closer to the truth in this than Casals.
Wonderful!
