    The timings on this set suggest that it's going be a long, slow slog through Bach's suites...

    I heard her play these live. Seemed like a mismatch.

    So did I, and I largely agree; I think that her musical personality is better suited to Romantic Era music and later. But let's face it - virtually every cellist of repute has to have a go at the Bach suites.

    What's improper about that cover? Barenboim's hand placement?

    His hand is 20 cm too high.

    Does this mean that her interpretation of the Bach suites is very romantic in the strictest sense - you know much vibrato, shameless use of dynamic effects and arbitrary rubato et. c.? Similar to Maisky or Shafran.

    I would not put my hand on any woman unless she is my wife.

    That would have been OK. It was more a case of Weilerstein not really engaging with the music in any way. She just didn't seem comfortable with the music in the way she is with later composers' works. Part of the problem might have been the format - playing all six suites in a single concert is a real challenge, both mentally and physically. Perhaps she'd have felt more comfortable playing one suite as part of a mixed program.

    In any event, I'll be interested to hear her recording.

    wkasimer hits the nail on the head.
