"If one can get past the snobbery of equating price with quality, one will find in this recording, as well as the first volume of these cello suites, a good performance. In quantity, each volume contains three suites, the same as any other record label. In both volumes, some of the allemandes tend to be slower than most other performances of it. Technically, the playing is for the most part right on the mark; however, it is not as expressive (or perhaps as emotional) as some others, although the music itself is beautiful enough that it can stand without lack of very expressive playing. The recording is very sonorous. If anyone has heard the sonority of Maurice Gendron's playing on Philips, this goes even beyond that."

"That person doesnt know what they are talking about Naxos is a really good lable. Very enjoyable cd. Great Bach, lots of passion, cheap...thats how good it gets!"
Beautiful sound, good technique, but boring

"A classic example of a technician with a beautiful sound - in fact, a perfectly clean, articulate, resonant cello sound. This man would probably be a great teacher. However, the music of Bach is not brought to life, but is rather placed at the service of this man's craft. Stick with the great recordings."
