Notes & Reviews:

Bach aficionados will be delighted to find again Wieland Kuijken in this reference album coupling the Cello Suites and Gamba Sonatas (with his son Piet), originally released in 2004 and shortly afterwards out of print. As Wieland Kuijken confesses in his interesting text, he laboured over the Cello Suites with his instrument (credited to Andrea Amati) for 30 years before eventually deciding that his interpretation was ready for this compelling recording: 'Today more than ever, I think it is a whole lifetime that one puts into these works, regardless of whatever one might say, whatever one might know.'

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Now Kuijken gets out his viola da gamba and takes off into the veldt with the sonatas. This otherwise excellent recording seems to favor the harpsichord at this point. Wieland chooses to play certain passages very softly. The object is to bring out the many important harpsichord lines that usually lie buried under the gamba sound. The Kuijkens end by winning this round. Debrus is a sensitive player in the modern. Kuijken gives us better dances and is considerably more alert to the baroque styles. For many other options, consult the Cello Overview (March/April 2009).
