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 four-stringed viola built by Giuseppe Guadagnini in 1780.
