Bach JS - The Cello Suites - Jian Wang

I have perfect pitch, so it's a requirement for me that the performer have it - this one does. The contemporary Bach Cello Suites of 'a certain very well known, other performer' reputed to be among the world's greatest, are in reality breathtakingly pathetic. In contrast, I was completely astonished at this performance, which equals & exceeds those of such past masters as Janos Starker. I couldn't believe that such subtleties were capable of being evoked on an instrument prone to rough sounds, such light glances & touches in the attack. And the intonation, absolutely flawless! Overall, it was like falling in love with your mother's face, in sound. I don't recommend this for everyone, but I can unhesitatingly do so for anyone cursed with perfect pitch.--Amazon

  3. Well, Jiang Wang's effort is very much enjoyable - at least for me - and I want to thank you for this offering, Otto.
    I listened to the 5th-Suite (Gigue) yesterday and repeated it a few times - at 1:30 'til the end of the piece there are passages which hook and skip some seconds of music. First I thought my PC would be overloaded and my player therefore too ...
    Is it possible, that you fix that?
    That would be great, Otto.
