5.0 out of 5 stars Pieter Wispelwey Bach cello suites [50th Anniversary set], 11 Jan. 2013
This review is from: Pieter Wispelwey /J. S. Bach: Six Cello Suites (50th Anniversary Recording) (Audio CD)
The low pitch [392] takes a while to get used to for somebody used to attempting them at 440, but once you're involved you are stunned by the virtuosity, sensitivity and individuality of these performances. Some [amateur cellists especially] will be taken aback by the speed of some preludes and courantes and yet in Wispelwey's hands they are entirely convincing. Should you prefer a more relaxed but equally valid approach, try Jaap ter Linden or Richard Tunnicliffe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far exceeded my expectations - and they were high, 5 Jan. 2013

This review is from: Pieter Wispelwey /J. S. Bach: Six Cello Suites (50th Anniversary Recording) (Audio CD)
This was a joy to listen to - and the accompanying DVD was excellent by way of explanation. I shall want to listen to it over and over again. It made me want to get Pieter Wispelwey's earlier recodings to compare them and also to compare this new recording with the other recordings that I have of these wonderful suites too (Isserlis, Casals, Rostropovich) - when I have time!

5.0 out of 5 stars Illuminating!, 19 Jan. 2015

This review is from: Pieter Wispelwey /J. S. Bach: Six Cello Suites (50th Anniversary Recording) (Audio CD)
This recording surely redefines the way these suites will be played in the future. The dvd shines a light on Bach's genius, character and the research that went into the suites.
Most of all these suites are bold, they dance and sing and they lament. Deeply human yet divine.
Surely a desert island disc... it will not be surpassed any time soon, don't miss it!
