Great recording at a great price,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bach: 6 Cello Suites Bwv 1007-1012 - Sony Classical Masters (Audio CD)
This is a superbly mastered recording of J.S. Bach's 6 cello suites. It was recorded with 24 bit resolution at 88.2 KHz sampling frequency. The virtue of which is simple, exact integer down-sampling to the 16 bit, 44.1 KHz standard used for CD. This produces a highly detailed, transparent, and thoroughly engaging sound: provided the playback equipment is capable of such.
I am not a musician, and far less a cellist, but in my opinion Janos Starker beautifully captures both the energy and delicacy of these suites.
Add to this the fact that you can purchase this double CD set for a very reasonable price (under 3 pounds/disc), and you will see why I have awarded an unreserved 5 stars.
If you are a cellist, or simply enjoy the sound of this instrument, then this recording is highly recommended.
