5.0 out of 5 stars Breathes in light and air. Melodically refined and graceful, 18 Aug 2008
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Bach - Cello Suites (Audio CD)
If you think that the Fournier version of these masterpieces is the all time standard then you will not like this interpretation, but if you think that the Fournier is heavy, intellectual, and bordering on the grave and ponderous, then you should try this interpretation. Here Wespelway breathes in great light and air into the spacious architectural structure of Bach, creating great spaciousness and delicacy of feeling. He concentrates on the melodic line at the expense of the harmonic structure often, but this is very refreshing and graceful. He seems to understand the melodic singing quality of these works and concentrates on this aspect instead of as in the Fournier version concentrating on the architectural and structural. This interpretation may even get you singing these pieces, which you may never have before heard so melodically or so freshly played. Night and day between this version (day) and the Fournier version (night).
