Having only recently started exploring classical music I can't claim to have knowledge of any other versions of these cello suites, and have to admit to being lured towards this version by the price and the favourable reviews. I'm very happy with my purchase and have thoroughly enjoyed listening. The recording is fantastically clear and the accoustics are brilliant (I understand it was recorded in a church). I look forward to hearing other versions over time, but I would say that this is a good baseline! Recommended.
