Notes and Editorial Reviews

J.S. Bach's genius is universally revered by music lovers, and a significant part of his output was in transcriptions of his own work, a tradition kept alive in Eleonor Bindman's piano versions of the Six Suites for Solo Cello. Eleonor Bindman has avoided embellishing these iconic pieces, preserving the intriguing ambiguities in Bach's implied harmonies and savoring their expressive qualities through the baritone register of a marvelous Bösendorfer piano. These admirably accurate transcriptions reveal the mysterious mathematical grace and flexibility of structure that makes Bach's art so organic and eternal. J.S.
