Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Performing regularly throughout the world as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist and teacher, British cellist Colin Carr is a frequent guest at the world's leading concert halls and festivals. He returned to Wigmore Hall in May 2012 to record Bach's cello suites, true masterworks regarded as the pinnacle of the repertoire for the instrument. Demonstrating his great technical prowess and mastery, Carr searched deep beneath the richly detailed surface of the six suites and explored their inner workings with great style. His meditative performance and profoundly personal communion with the works of Bach are captured within this recording.

BBC Music Magazine, December 2013
The aural impression is of Carr playing simply what Bach wrote, free from exaggerated gesture and histrionics...Carr's limited dynamic range is a blessing: no brutally forced tone.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
Carr's phrasing and articulation are so precise yet carefully understated, and of a kind of total-acceptance simplicity, that the music is given space to sing...this performance is a masterclass in restrain and musical altruism.

American Record Guide, November/December 2013
A performance of all six Bach suites in concert is a fine idea, since it creates a continuous ambience that makes the music sound more concentrated and intense, even played in as relaxed a manner as Carr does. Both concerts took place on the same day, May 5, 2012. It was a rainy day in London, as Andrew Stewart's notes tell us, but Carr has kept his Goffriller cello dry and it sounds lovely in Wigmore Hall.
