Notes & Reviews:

Acclaimed cellist Joel Becktell presents two versions of Bach's Solo Cello Suites 1-3, one performed on baroque cello and the other on the modern cello. Less a "compare and contrast" than a "meeting of the minds," the two performances\ reflect Becktell's conviction that modern instruments need not preclude period-style inspiration. Both versions present the Suites in lively, nuanced, highly personal performances, with the cellos' tonal ranges - from intimate to rollicking - beautifully captured by Blue Griffin. Becktell's performances breathe new life into these 300-year-old masterpieces.
