If you like the Cello then this is a must. It is beautiful. The fact it is unaccompanied just makes the listening experience more pleasurable. I am not an expert in classical music (as...

3.0 out of 5 stars More brain than heart
Ma is playing with full control as always. Sometimes I wish that he could let go of that control. This music is dangerous, it requires full control and the heart exposed at the same time. Unfortunately Ma is showing more brain than heart here.
The interpretation is beautiful, but it never becomes "necessary".
He approaches the music with a romantic filter. That...

If you like the Cello then this is a must. It is beautiful. The fact it is unaccompanied just makes the listening experience more pleasurable. I am not an expert in classical music (as you can tell) but anyone can enjoy this music. I will say it again.. It is beautiful music and well worth buying.

I have a fairly hectic lifestyle which includes a couple of active kids. If I put this on, I am transported by the beauty of the unaccompanied cello and am able to think clearly and serenely despite the chaos. It's like paracetemol for an aching mind. Love it!!

He approaches the music with a romantic filter. That is OK, I'm not a purist. But I rather go for a purist that finds new things in the music than a performer that goes for perfection.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bach: Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello (Audio CD)
I HAVE HEARD MANY VARIOUS RECORDINGS OF THE CELLO CONCERTOS BUT MUST
STAND TO APPLAUSE YOYO MA.
BRAVO ,SUPERB,TOTAL BRILLIANCE.
PLAYED TO PERFECTION .
A JOY TO THE EAR OF ANYONE WHO IS A FAN
OF BACH ESPECIALLY HIS CELLO CONCERTOS.
YOYO MA IS BY FAR A WELL RESPECTED MUSICIAN WHO
CLEARLY PLAYS WITH THE REPECT AND PASSION THAT
IT DESERVES.
PERFECT COMPANY TO A RELAXING EVENING
WHICH I AM SURE WOULD COME WITH THE APPROVAL
AND APPLAUSE OF BACH HIMSELF.
