The above is probably the original title - written for Viola da Gamba and, at a guess, harpsichord. Which I have on vinyl. So it was very interesting to hear this music played on Cello and Piano - and by the famous Glenn Gould. It certainly gives these 3 compositions a different airing ! My only criticism is that you need a magnifying glass to read the CD notes. I am serious ! Otherwise - Excellent - and a speedy delivery by you as well. Thanks.

You're going to be hard pressed to find a more thought-out, personal and joyful version of these sonatas. It's a celebration of music and a celebration of the genius of Bach and it feels like it has been offered to us by these two great musicians as a personal musical gift. You can feel with every note that these two people were going to do nothing but perform this work with the utmost care, love and attention. The result is an extremely charismatic and original performance that will probably never be matched. A superb recording that I can't recommend enough.

I bought this by mistake believing it to be viola and harsichord. When it arrived I was dissapointed to find that infact, it was cello and piano. On playing however I found this superb marriage by two enormously talented individuals; I couldn't stop listening..... Sheer beauty..... I usually ignore suggestions from Amazon but......Thank you Amazon for suggesting it!

OK, it's not 'authentic' - but it is top quality Gould, sympathetically well balanced with Rose's cello. It's just one of those discs you put on and it sings to you immediately, along with the 48 and Goldberg. If you don't like Gould, don't buy it and don't review it!

Here we have two superb musicians playing music that they clearly love. It's fine music, if perhaps Bach in workmanlike rather than inspired mode, but you can sense the pleasure that Gould and Rose found in playing it, and you can't help but be carried along with it. A wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable cd.

Of course anything played by Gould is interesting even if you don't like the performances. Some of these tempi are a bit slow by today's standards and many would prefer these works played on more 'authentic' instruments. But these remain historically valuable performances of great integrity Julian Mincham.

As with everything that Glenn Gould recorded this one is an absolute treat
Of course these works should be heard on period instruments
but
when you're dealing with a talent this large
don't look a gift-horse in the mouth

I am pleased to have this recording even if it makes me want to get other versions of these works; the sound very sllghtly
sounds it's age being rather thin - but it is undistorted !
