This album kicks butt. I would love to hear Sara perform Brian Crain's "Piano and Cello Duet".


I would give this less stars but I'm not sure if I should. It's a very odd reading of the Bach Suites and that's an understatement. Sant'Ambrogio seems to be concerned with the melody only at the exclusion of everything else. She takes the tempi with great liberty almost playing every other measure in another marking. It's weird. Gone is the sense of pulse and counterpoint that is central to the works. It goes agains everything we know about how these works should sound. She treats this almost like a late romantic work. It might be an interesting excersise but she's no Glenn Gould and her constant intonation problems do not help her cause. This just didn't work for me and I can only assume that it won't work for you. If this is your first exposure to these masterpieces stay away from this recording first until you've heard the accepted accounts.

Passionate playing

This recording makes the listener feel as if she is in the room playing just for you! The performances are incredibly passionate and her cello sounds amazing! Fantastic sound quality. I totally recommend this CD not only for a first time listener to bring these pieces alive but also to fill out any audiophiles collection.
