5.0 out of 5 stars A Bach's Bach 11 Oct. 2008
By P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nobuko Imai makes this playing very much about Bach and very little about herself. The vibrato is almost non-existent, but surprisingly not in a way that you immediately notice. The playing is subtle instead of lush (which she shows she can be in many other recordings). Some may find the subtlety as a fault, but for me it works.

Also note that many violists approach the Suites as cello suites, rather than independent pieces of music. Bach himself was an avid transcriber, and so it excites me that Imai makes this recording sound uniquely violistic. Rivka Golani's recording sounds heavy handed to me, and while it may work on cello, I think these suites essentially change when transcribed up to a brighter octave.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'must' for anyone who loves the viola 5 Mar. 2013
By ECD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
... and for anyone else who just wants to get acquainted with the viola sound. The music lies as naturally for the viola as for the cello, and could equally well have been written for it - there's nothing of the 'arrangement' about this at all. Imai is a world-class performer, and the music is glorious.
