Notes & Reviews:

"These new performances are carefully prepared, beautifully executed and most eloquently expressed. The instruments, too, sound well...Wispelwey is an imaginative player with a highly developed sense of fantasy...[his] version sits comfortably on the uppermost range of the period-instrument performance ladder. Strongly recommended." -NA, Gramophone

Gramophone Classical Music Guide
Pieter Wispelwey is equally at home on Baroque and modern instruments. These performances are carefully prepared, beautifully executed and most eloquently expressed. The instruments, too, sound well, Wispelwey having chosen an early 18th-century cello by Barak Norman for the first five Suites, and a five-stringed violoncellopiccolo by an unidentified craftsman for the special requirements of the Sixth... Wispelwey's set of Bach's Cello Suites, then, is deserving of praise. If you're familiar with the gruff grandeur of Pablo Casals, or the aristocratic nobility of Fournier, then these performances will throw an entirely different light on the music, more conversational and with airier discourse. You may never want to be without the two earlier sets, but Wispelwey's version sits comfortably on the uppermost range of the period-instrument performance ladder.
