5.0 out of 5 stars Rich rewarding sound.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 13 July 2019
The most striking impression is the sound of the cello Yo Yo uses, and the recording method; which emphasises the deep resonance and immediacy of the instrument. There's a pleasant faint echo in the acoustic in the higher register. It may be the 1733 Domenico Montagnana "Petunia", though I see he has favoured a Stradivarius for other Baroque music in the past. It's interesting to compare with the Du Pre version who coincidentally played the identical Strad., having been gifted it in 1964. Her recording is from 1962 and Inevitably this version is raw by comparison. Soon after this she started to study for a time with Paul Tortelier, who also recorded the Suites for a 1961 version. I imagine it's up to the player to emphasise either the studious, emotive, purely musical or whichever terms apply. To my ear Tortelier brings a relaxed refinement to the pieces, a magisterial quality, quite French? The Ma playing has been described as detached but I don't hear that at all. There's great respect and thoughtful musicality here with astounding skill.
