5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE BEST, 9 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bach - Cello Suites (Complete) (Audio CD)
This is one of the best performances of Bach's solo cello suites I have heard. I have other recordings by Jaap Ter Linden and Pieter Wispelwey (equally fine) but I think this recording stands out. I'm not a cello player but Jean Guihen Queyras's performance to me appears to strike the right balance between correct tempo and clear phrasing. The recorded sound is superb, wonderfully warm; not too close with just enough ambience of the recording venue - a church in Sulzburg.
Queyras uses a 1696 Gioffredo Cappa cello, with a modern non-baroque set up, for all six suites and doesn't use a six string piccolo cello in the sixth.
The double CD set also comes with a bonus DVD, which includes a full performance of the third suite and a short film about the making of the recording.
In summary, a performance to treasure for many years listening pleasure. Highly recommended.

This is a review of a different recording, not the recording by Victor Yoran to which it is linked.

I am sorry F J Brown, but I really do not understand your comment. Could you explain?

Pedro el Malo - What FJB is saying that the two reviews here relate to the recording of the Cello Suites by Jean Guhen Queyras. However, they have got attached to a completely different recording by Victor Yoran as well. I imagine you got to them via the Queyras page and therefore couldn't understand the point that FJB was making. Anybody reaching from the Yoran page, on the other hand, would have wondered what the reviewers were talling about.
