Notes & Reviews:

No one has ever before recorded these complete works on the harp! Recorded by Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Adam Abeshouse. Bach wrote the solo cello suites between 1717 and 1720. They were largely forgotten after his death until the thirteen-year-old Pablo Casals turned up an edition in a tiny music shop in Barcelona and began to learn them. Only fifty years later (1937-39) did he record them and make them famous again. Another forty years passed until a young harp student, Victoria Drake, went to study in France. Unsatisfied with the limited repertoire for her instrument, she undertook transcriptions of all the Bach cello suites for harp, and after twenty five years more, she has recorded them. It has been a process with a history of almost three hundred years!
