To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First, the performance. I have several versions of the Bach 'cello suites, but this is by far my favourite. Great feeling and interpretation. Then, there's the vinyl quality. All the discs are flat and quiet - really high quality surfaces and sound quality. Highly recommended.
The disc is the third and final rendition by Yo-Yo Ma of Bach's solo cello suits representing a lifelong commitment by the artists to these works extending over a period of nearly six decades.
On listening to the music, I felt that it possessed a superb flow, a correctly measured pace, intimacy, depth and captured the beauty of the contrapuntal variety and melody of the works while it was conducive to the communion of its spiritual and humane character. The impact was one of serenity and fulfillment.
It occupies a rarefied space along with the renditions of Pablo Casals and Paul Tortelier.
