Notes and Editorial Reviews

Gérard Caussé, one of the world’s great viola players, takes on the epic musical challenge of the six suites that Bach composed for cello.
Joining Caussé is another distinguished French artist, the actor Laurent Terzieff, who died in 2010.
Between each suite, Terzieff reads poems by the poet Rainer-Maria Rilke, Bohemian-born, but deeply influenced by French culture.
