Notes & Reviews:

  • J.S. Bach's Six Cello Suites occupy a very special place in the history of western music. Dozens of recordings exist, many more have certainly be made and many more will surely come.
  • Claus Kanngiesser, who studued with Pablo Casals, has now undertaken a recording of these pieces for Edition EigenArt at TACET.
  • With a distinctive and personal way of playing, he questions interpretative rituals and taboos of playing technique, supplying information on these matters in the accompanying booklet.

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
Kanngiesser has been around for a while. He actually worked with Casals at the beginning, and with Nelsova at Juilliard as well. Later he was influenced by Harnoncourt and Bylsma in his interpretation of Bach. His bowings and fingerings are basic. Vibrato is effective when used.
