Notes & Reviews:

This album is part of a series of twenty must-have titles from the Warner Classics catalog, featuring their original and well-known iconic covers. " Bach in German means 'brook'," explained Paul Tortelier. "If you add too much expression, the water stops flowing. . . . If you want to do an abstract Bach, then the water turns cold. That's no longer a Bach who glorifies God and nature ... " In these performances of the Cello Suites, the charismatic Tortelier gives lucid, vivid, dancing expression to his admiration and veneration for the composer.
