Johann Sebastian Bach: Six Suites for Solo Cello

Add To Wish List + £19.99 - Out of stock

Melodiya presents Johann Sebastian Bach’s solo suites performed by Daniil Shafran.His artistic career of more than 60 years spanned an entire era of twentieth-century Russian performing art. Shafran was one of the first Soviet cellists to turn to Bach’s music. However, the outstanding cellist’s 'way to Bach' was long and complicated. According to Shafran, he used to treat Bach’s cello suites as 'instructive' music, but the recordings of Pablo Casals, who he met after the war, overthrew his idea of the cello. Even after that Shafran had just some of the pieces or their parts in his repertoire and finally performed and recorded Bach’s sonatas for cello and piano with composer Andrei Volkonsky. The complete suites for solo cello were performed by Shafran during the concert season of 1966 in Moscow. Usually, Shafran went to a recording studio to sum up his highest performing accomplishments after numerous concert performances. The recordings of the six cello suites by J. S. Bach made in the 1970s came at the zenith of Daniil Shafran’s performing art.
