This is a simply an awe-inspiring performance by one of the premier cellists alive today. The Bach Cello Suites for Unaccompanied Cello are seldom mastered, and the usual result is the mastery of the music over the performer, showing up every technical flaw in his technique.
Slava, as he is called by his fans, not only demonstrates his technical mastery of the material, but also his ability to bring the material to life so that this is a exchange of ideas between the souls of three parties, J.S.Bach, Slava, and the listener. And the playing field that this exchange takes place on is the magnificent Duport Stradivarius which has a life of its own as well.

One of the most beautiful and intense solo cello pieces performed by one the best cellists ever in an auditorium with the most magnificent acoustics. The intensity echoes of the highs and lows in life. It is breathtaking and wonderful and is a surpassing delight every time I play it. No finite number of stars suffices but I don't make the rules here.

One of the Masters... Feb. 19 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm not going to debate over whose recording is best. What I do know is this: This is a beautiful, well thought-out recording that took years to make. And this thoughtfulness shows in every nuance of the production. It's truely a masterpiece, played by one of the masters.

Mstislav Rostropovich' is most genuine JS Bach interpretator.One of the greatest cellists of the 20th century, and I consider "Slava" the greatest cellist of all time. He could play this any style he wants...
