Product description

Product Description

It was with three of Bach's cello suites, transcribed for the viola, that Maxim Rysanov made his début on BIS in 2010. The Sunday Times had one reservation: 'Rysanov's recording of Bach's suites is near perfection; the only flaw being that he did not perform all six.' With the present disc that flaw is now being rectified, and the set is complete.

These suites were originally written for a five-stringed instrument, but are heard here on Rysanov's own four-stringed viola built by Giuseppe Guadagnini in 1780.

Review

'Brilliant Ukrainian-born Rysanov, whose lively, light-footed interpretation makes the most of the suites' basis in dance, enjoys the nippiness of this smaller instrument - here, a luscious 1780 Guadagnini.' --The Independent, 06/04/2014, Claudia Pritchard

'For those new to Rysanov's playing style, these sharply etched, punchy realizations should immediately impress for their power and vitality...Rysanov's [recording] is attended by a devil-may-care spontaneity which is undeniably exciting, provided purist notions of how this music ought to be played can temporarily be set aside.' --International Record Review, June 2014

'When the young Ukrainian's recording of Rowland-Jones's transcriptions of the first. fourth and fifth Cello Suites was released in 2010, my only complaint was that he hadn't given us all six of them. Four years has seemed a long wait, but here are Nos 2 (D minor), 3 (C major) and 6 (D major). If anything, Rysanov's playing has grown in depth of feeling, virtuosity and tone colour.' ALBUM OF THE WEEK --the Sunday Times, 01/06/2014, Hugh Canning
