5.0 out of 5 stars Superb music making..., 5 May 2014
Mr. Robert D. Roy (Edinburgh, Scotland United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: J.S. Bach: Cello Suites (Ophelie Gaillard) (Audio CD)
I bought these CDs a couple of years ago in Paris and promptly forgot them! Big mistake!

In an era where every 'cellist seems eager to commit these masterpieces to cd as soon as possible, there are as many interpretations as there are musicians and each has as much to offer as the next one. All tastes are catered for - from the understated Fournier whose CDs have accompanied me through many a night shift and whose approach is akin to sitting up late with a great friend and a bottle of malt whisky to the extrovert Rostropovich who seems to declaim each note as a prophecy.

So where does Ms. Gaillard come on the pantheon? Well, to my ears, she shares the intimate confidentiality of Fournier except she strikes me as a Port kind of girl rather than the Water of Life. Certainly, the sounds she makes on her Goffriller 'cello are ideal for late night listening. This is music making of the very highest order and I can't say anything to praise her more than her name deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the two luminaries above.
