5.0 out of 5 stars A treasure!, 2 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Janos Starker Plays Sonatas (Audio CD)
I bought this primarily for the third of Bach's Gamba Sonatas, for which there was not room on the Mercury double CD of the six cello suites which used the first two gamba sonatas [all three are played on the cello with piano accompaniment by Gyorgy Sebok] as fillers.
But there is much else here - the rest of it by Italian composers of the 17th and 18th centuries - to delight the ear; admirers of Starker and the 'cello in general will not be disappointed. The pianist in all these works is Stephen Swedish. To mention just one piece, the Allegro from Boccherini's A major suite has a second subject which bears such an uncanny resemblance to Howard Goodall's theme for the TV series 'Blackadder' as to suggest plaigiarism.
