Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Anner Bylsma’s pioneering 1979 traversal of Bach’s cello suites was the first to employ period playing techniques and instruments (a 1669 Goffriller cello, and an anonymous Tyrolean ‘Violoncello piccolo’ in Suite No. 6). These factors alone gave the cycle landmark status, but Bylsma’s endlessly fertile imagination afforded revelatory insights into this music that are as dazzling today as they were almost without precedent two decades ago.

It’s good to see these astonishing performances back in the catalogue, and probably no exaggeration to suggest that all subsequent authentic versions must yield to Bylsma’s visionary interpretations."

-- Michael Jameson, BBC Music Magazine
