Notes & Reviews:

This new 2 CD set presents the first recording by the multi award-winning French virtuoso Anne Gastinel of the "holy grail" of cello music, J. S. Bach’s six suites for solo cello. The 'Cello Suites' by Johann Sebastian Bach are, for all cellists, the highest expression of their art, the absolute to be aimed for. For Anne Gastinel the time was ripe. Her interpretation of this major work is wonderfully natural. The combination of musician and instrument, the famous Testore she cannot be without, is impressive. The cello sings, and its warmth remains in the heart for a long time after listening to the music.

Gramophone Magazine
With an easy technique and a mellow yet focused sound, she dances to the Allemandes, scampers through the Courantes and oozes character in the 'galanterie' movements. Above all she plays with a singing tone that reaches its apogee in the Sarabandes, most notably those of the Fourth and Sixth suites which for sheer sustained sweet lyricism are among the most beautiful I have heard.
