 Wonderful performance of 3 Bach Suites for unacco June 10, 2013 By Warren Harris See All My Reviews "This recording features Daxun Zhang performing three of Bach’s suites for unaccompanied cello on bass – specifically, Suite No. 1 in G Major, Suite No. 5 in c-minor, and Suite No. 4 in E-flat Major. And my goodness, can Mr. Zhang play. The works themselves are always stunning when performed well on the Cello, but on this recording they really sound fantastic on the bass. And, as the liner notes explain, since the bass is tuned in fourths, it is extremely difficult to play certain chords and double-stops. But you wouldn’t know that just by listening. The playing is seemingly effortless, and the warmth of the bass is just marvelous. This CD is extremely well recorded, the material is fantastic (it’s Bach!), and I can’t say enough about the quality of the performance. Just buy it – you’ll love it!" Report Abuse
