HASH(0x9fa55b88) out of 5 stars Good overall, and there are better 26 Oct. 2010
By Sonoma's Davey - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Baumann's reading of the Bach's Cello Suites is very enjoyable. This recording was originally made for Teldec, and is a welcome rerelease on Warner's budget label. Bach demands true virtuosity of the cellist with these suites, at times requiring the performer to produce chords that are produced by simultaneously playing more than one string on the cello. Fournier offers a much more romantic interpretation of these works on Bach: 6 Suiten für Violoncello solo, but not at the bargain price of this recording.

HASH(0xa0771198) out of 5 stars Well Done! 4 Sept. 2011
By mookie - Published on Amazon.com
I'm presently writing a paper on the effects of stress on the brain's physiology. The only thing that can get me to focus properly is Baroque music, but nothing to "ornamental". My two choices were this and "Kontakte" by Karlheinz Stockhausen (admittedly not baroque, but engages my brain). For the purposes of concentration, I naturally chose this.
I've been playing these suites on Tuba (go ahead and laugh) for quite some time now. This is the first purchase I've made of these pieces in their entirety and am doing so for research purposes. Upon a preliminary listen, the only criticism is that the performer has fallen into the "Mechanical Bach" crevasse, in that the notes and rhythms are there but I'm not moved to tears. This is not to detract from the overall performance whatsoever.
Good production quality, outstanding playing, and doing stuff that I find quite difficult...written far out of my range, and the timbre just isn't there.
Overall, a great buy. You shall not be disappointed.

HASH(0x9fef9054) out of 5 stars Exquisitely Beautiful 4 Mar. 2013
By J.S. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
These are some of the most beautiful pieces ever written for the cello. Baumann does justice to the piece with his exquisite expression. I enjoy listening to these pieces to relax and unwind after a long day at work. The order and beauty in Bach is incredible, but it is something altogether different from piano or harpsichord when it is played on a cello. It almost makes you vibrate with it. It has been said that the cello is one of the instruments most like a human voice, and this recording touches the soul. I would highly recommend it.

That being said, listening to solo cello, no matter how sublime, gets monotonous after a while. Break it up with some Mozart piano concertos, some Vivaldi flute concertos, and some Dvorak quintets. You will better appreciate each by listening to different textures and voices instead of tiring yourself out by trying to listen to all of Bach's cello suites at one sitting.

HASH(0x9fcdfaa4) out of 5 stars Beautiful Music at a Bargain Price 22 Jun. 2013
By Fussy but Fair - Published on Amazon.com

This collection is wonderful (well, it's Bach) for background music and straight listening. The pieces aren't the highest quality, so audiophiles will probably knock it, but for the price, the quality is high. If you're not too fanatical about sound (and if you are, you shouldn't be listening to mp3's) you shouldn't be disappointed.
