Notes & Reviews:

The surroundings for this recording couldn't be any better: the majestic background of the Bavarian Alps, the tiny pilgrimage church called St. Servatius and the highly skilled Swiss cellist with Taiwanese roots, Wen-Sinn Yang. This is the centre stage for Bach's gorgeous Six Suites for Solo Violoncello (BWV 1007-1012) composed in 1720.

"There's real feeling in his music making, a sense of genuine connection with the spirit of the music ... his cello sings with almost human expressiveness" -Classics Today

"... the austere visual dimension can have the effect of focusing one's listening, not least as the interior of the 12th-century Servatiuskirche auf dem Streichen at Chemgau makes a fitting backdrop both for the music and for Yang's vision of it. Just as the church manages somehow to be both beautiful and austere, so Yang is unafraid to let fundamental full tone achieve a powerful sonority in places, while at the same time keeping his readings light with some adroitly detailed articulation." -Gramophone Magazine
