Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

There are well over a hundred printed editions of the Bach Cello Suites. You may be asking "Why another Bach cello suites recording?" The answer is simple: it is music that captures the imagination, and it is some of the greatest music ever written for cello. Performing here is Peter Martens, one of South Africa's finest all-around musicians, soloists, and directors. His first TwoPianists release received rave reviews and also won the coveted South African Music Award.

American Record Guide, March / April 2013
Martens is a fine player from South Africa who plays these classics (or baroques) of the cello literature with taste and love and a sense of phrasing and voice leading that is satisfying to the ears. He balances his love of Casals's romantic phrasing with a respect for the simple clarity of the early music players, resulting in a very listenable set of performances.
