J.S. Bach: Suites No. 3 & 6 for Unaccompanied 'cello - Janos Starker
GSC036DL (MONO) - J.S. Bach: Suites for Unaccompanied 'cello, No. 3 BWV 1009; No. 6 BWV 1012 - Janos Starker, 'cello - Starker recorded the 'cello suites 5 times during his long career. The recordings on this disc were the first, originally recorded by Period in the early '50s (only 1,3,4 & 6 were recorded at that time). These suites are possibly the most challenging and passionate of Bach's work, and Starker's approach, with long, arching phrasing and rich resonate tone, is a centerpiece of the mid-20th century style of playing. This is Starker at the beginning of his chamber career, and the performances are unforgettable. Transcription of the Saga LP reissue was by John Whitmore.
