A celebrated recording of Bach’s masterpieces for solo cello – the undisputed best bargain in this popular repertoire.
“This is serious playing which makes a real attempt to reach the heart of the music without the aid of artifice. … Cohen’s technique enables him to play these deeply expressive movements with admirable control; phrases and sustained notes sing out eloquently, often sounding an unusually deep note of pathos. … [Cohen’s is] a leisurely and expansive view, imbuing them with rhythmic suppleness and a poetic sense of improvisatory freedom. … Intonation is secure and [this] set meets with formidable competition, yet few of their adherents could fail to be impressed by playing of this order. Fine recorded sound.”-Gramophone
