By SH_ VINE VOICE on 2 Mar. 2004
Format: Audio CD
This music was at least 200 years ahead of its time and I love it so much that I have no less than 10 versions including Ma, Casals, Fournier.
This one has the richest tones, a beautiful phrasing, a gorgeous tendency to linger occasionally and a real heart to it.
Desert island disk material but you need a good stereo because the sound is extremely rich and resonant on a period cello. Tempo is generally slower and more relaxing than but he does pick up the speed where necessary.
You gotta have it, honestly, and the people in the USA have it really cheap.

Format: Audio CD
Although I'm not particulary fond of Casal's idiosyncratic recordings of these addictive cello music, I completely agree with him saying that 'Bach cannot write a note, as insignificant it may seem, without this note being transcendental'.
And here by the hands of Sergi Istomin, he polishes this diamond from a unique perspective. His tempi are somewhat slower than those of his collegues. For example, his cello sings for 4 minutes and 20 seconds in No.2 Prelude; conversely Grendon(1964) 3:33; Kirshbaum(1993) 3:39; Fournier(1961) 3:26; Schiff(1984) just 3 minutes; and Bylsma(1979) 3:08.
But you'll be surprised at his interesting phrasing here and there, which are again convincing. This is a must for those who are keen on period-instrument music.
