5.0 out of 5 stars profound in every sense March 2 2004
By SH_
Format:Audio CD
This is the CD you need to test your new hi fi. The sound of the period cello literally shakes the earth and his phrasing is so original it goes right through you. Generally slow in tempo, this is like the Johnny Cash of Bach Cello Suites, no 2 only to the more sophisticated Fournier, similar in mood to the great Casals but more affecting somehow - amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting memorial for a great artist April 7 2005
By Arthur R. Krieck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
These recordings offer a kind of music-making seldom heard today, committed, intense and vivid. There are no gaps of concentration here: every note is played with such passionate attention that the music seems to live on its own, beyond the instrument. After decades of exposure to "period" performance practice one might raise one's eyebrows at some of Miss Fuchs' choices of tempo and articulation, but the playing is so gorgeously musical that these questions are irrelevant.

The remastering is quite well done, using good but aged (monophonic) vinyl copies of these early 1950s recordings as sources, rather than the original master tapes. As a result there is some LP surface noise and a bit of turntable rumble, and the music which was at the end of an LP side is more constricted in sound and frequency range, and somewhat more distorted, than that at the outer edge, a common flaw of the LP medium. But the sound overall is quite lstenable and Miss Fuchs' unique, rich tone, faultless intonation and extraordinary facility on her huge Gaspar da Salo viola are well-reproduced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lillian Fuchs at the top of her game May 11 2010
By Steve Missal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are unfamiliar with Lillian Fuchs, the great violist, then break that anonymity barrier with this selection of 6 Bach Suites, transcribed for Viola. Fuchs, whose brother was the well-known violinist Joseph Fuchs, plays with passion and a deep insight into these works, and her gorgeous sound is reason alone to listen. I am hoping some day that the recording of the Martinu Madrigals and the Mozart Duet, featuring this sister/brother Fuchs team, will be released on CD. It is also a gem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning! Dec 16 2008
By V. Ferri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Very beautiful and honest recording.
read the Gramophone (UK) review by L. Kemp, 1/2005: ... Phrases are often marked out with a generously free rubato which, while it can endanger forward momentum, also gives the music a refreshingly improvisatory feel..but this is Bach playing of elegance and delicacy - I love the way his double-stops can be like wispy brush- strokes. In fact, by the time I reached the end of it, I realised that this unassuming release (recorded as far back as 1997) offers one of the most attractive and satisfying `Baroque' recordings of these pieces yet made.
