Customer Reviews

Nothing Like a Cello!

As a cellist, I strongly believe that there is nothing as beautiful as a well-played cello. This rendition of the Bach Cello Suites is just as good as Yo Yo Ma or any of the biggies. While I would prefer to put Pablo Casals on instead, this is still a tremendous album. Mr. Haimovitz has stayed true to the music and has enhanced it with his own personal style.

Out of this world.

I used to listen to this type of music as a child. It relaxes me. It has the abilty to make you forget your troubles around you and make you drift away into a deep sleep. I appreciate Matt Haimovitz for creating such sweet music. Not everybody hast the talent to play the cello like that. Good luck with your next album!

How can such a good cellist get it wrong?

I've like his playing before but how on earth can he do this to the Bach suites? He manages to get an ugly sound out of his cello and takes strange and odd choice of articulation and phrasing. For my money the Fournier recording is the one to get. Still listen to it 'till this day. Beats the pants off of all these fancy so-called up and coming wonders. Haimovitz is good but he totaly missed it on the holy grail of cello music.
