Mstislav Rostropovich (cello)


Bach, Johann Sebastian

Cello Suites 1-6 (complete), BWV1007-1012


Mstislav Rostropovich (cello)


The greatest cellist of the 20th century in the bestselling, legendary 1995 recording of the Bach cello suites.


Rostropovich verbally characterizes each one of the series: 'No.1, lightness; No.2, sorrow and intensity; No.3, brilliance; No.4, majesty and opacity; No.5, darkness; and No.6, sunlight'. True to his word, more than usual he draws distinctions between each, also reflecting the point that the structure of each suite grows in complexity. The results are both moving and strong, with the sound of the cello, as recorded in a warm acoustic, full and powerful, making one hear the music afresh, with pianissimo repeats magically achieved.
