Notes and Editorial Reviews

The focus behind these electrifying new interpretations of three Bach cello suites resides in the essential wellspring of dance. Bach took Baroque dance forms as the template for his sublime abstractions, spinning webs of music that have entranced, mystified and exalted the spirits of musicians and audiences for hundreds of years. Cellist Charles Curtis and producer Robert Sadin have crossed time and space to bring into the studio one of the most ancient sources of rhythm - the Tabla drum - providing an organically energizing acoustic embellishment that makes these dances truly sparkle and dance on an almost otherworldly scale.

If you think you've heard it all when it comes to the Bach Cello Suites, think again - and listen
