Notes & Reviews:
Decca presents six new titles in the VIRTUOSO series. With stellar recordings, famous artists, strong visuals, innovative booklet notes and best-selling composers, all offered at an excellent price, the Virtuoso series makes serious classical music approachable without compromise. This album contains Bach's Cello Suites, performed by Lynn Harrell.
Lynn Harrell is eminently straightforward... and his performances have the merit of being unaffected and well-shaped. The Preludes of each have real grandeur and the Sarabandes are dignified.
