Bach Cello Suites
Here in the UK there is a radio programme called ‘Desert Island Discs.’ The premise of this is that if you were stranded on a desert island what are the pieces you would want to have on your playlist…this would be mine. The very first classical record I ever bought was Pablo Casals recording of the Bach cello suites. I was learning them at the time (yes on a bass…) and this was the recommended recording to get a feel from them. When listening to my old record I can hear him breathing through the music and can even hear the bowings! Sadly with digital technology a lot of that has been lost but that still doesn’t diminish the sheer genius of this beautiful music. I really hope you love it!
