Stereophile Recording of the Month!
“Why is Stereophile publishing its fourth review (at least) in three years of a recording of Bach’s Six Cello Suites? Partly it’s because the suites, which were composed ca 1720 but remained in obscurity until a young Pablo Casals rediscovered them in a secondhand sheet music store in Barcelona in 1890, contain some of the most joyous, moving, and profound music in the Western classical music canon. It’s also because these two volumes, which present Grammy Award–winning cellist Zuill Bailey’s second recorded exploration of the suites (the first was on Telarc more than two decades ago), abound in astoundingly beautiful musicianship illumined by fresh insights and superb engineering.”
Wow. We are honored by this amazing review from Stereophile reviewer Jason Victor Serinus.
