    I beg your pardon it is Cocset bruno born in 1963. He has also his own orchestra called "les basses réunies"Attachment 109018

    Et vous avez raison : baroqueux à un côté péjoratif en France et Belgique
    En fait je ne connais pas l'expression Anglaise qui convienne et qui soit neutre.

    Bonne soirée

    Fundamentalist HIP was a pretty good shot! Moi, je ne connais pas une expression française qui est neutre comme HIP en anglais! “Informé” peut-être?

    I Like the Isserlis and Queyras Bach;

    I made a modern video of the prelude of the first suite in an aircraft hangar in germany with a free and personal, hidden historical informed approach on a modern cello. I also recorded some Piatti there if you are interested.

    I just picked up a remastered Casals recording. Only listened to the first suite. The playing is great, sound still so-so.

    Also recently listened again to Ma's latest recording. It may become my fav.

    Couldn't pass this one up for the price of $3.99. https://www.amazon.com/Cello-Suite-M.../dp/B003JFH4MU

    Jorg Baumann recorded 1982 and released several times.

    Listener comments are positive, the only review I could find labeled it terrible. I find it a straightforward approach and well recorded. A middle of the pack rendition that is basically enjoyable.

    The late Jörg Baumann's recording was the first recording of the cello suites, I purchased, already in the days of LP. Later I acquired a few dozens other recordings but I still find Baumann's very uplifting and - as you write - very well recorded.

    I tend to say, that Casals' recording is outdated and hasn't but historical interest, while Fournier's recording is a classic. Even this has BTW been surpassed several times.

    I don't know if anyone has mentioned Boris Pergamenschikow but I think his interps are quite wonderful.
    "God," asked Adam, "why did you make Eve so beautiful?"
    And He replied, "So that you could love her."
    "But God," asked Adam, "why did you make her so stupid?"
    And He replied, "So that she could love you."

    Gosh, the Beschi is amazing. I've so far only really listened to the Yo-Yo Ma, so it's nice to hear such a different take on them.

    Sorta stumbled onto this thread after a long layoff from this forum. Listened (via YouTube) to the Yo-Yo Ma suite he performed for the BBC, but in the end, ordered the Rostropovich set from Amazon.


    For Christmas last, I bought a new Pioneer subwoofer that marked down from $600 to $250, and combined with a Yamaha receiver, makes cellos sound incredible. Can't wait for the disks to arrive.

    I heard Alisa Weilerstein give a superb performance of all six suites Friday night in Boston's Jordan Hall. I hope that she records them soon.

    Aftewards, as usual, I felt the need to dip into some recordings of the suites. First up was Yo-yo Ma's second recording ("Inspired by Bach"). Ma was apparently not very inspired; his playing here is technically secure and deadly dull. His third recording, recently released, is vastly better.

    I next turned to Rostropovich's EMI recording. I hadn't heard it in a while, but remembered finding it subpar, but couldn''t remember why. Now I do - it's not particularly well-recorded - there's nothing like the big, beautiful sound that he produced in the flesh - but the bigger problem is that much of his playing is metronomic and foursquare. I understand the desire to maintain a steady tempo, but surely Bach intended the music to have a sense of joy that Rostropovich completely misses. Very surprising.

    Finally, I put on Ralph Kirshbaum. His playing has everything that Ma and Rostropovich missed. It's beautifully recorded, and the sound he produces is breathtaking. Even when playing at an even tempo, the music has plenty of life and vigor, thanks to Kirshbaum's subtle use of accents and dynamics, and ability to mold phrases. The only downside to this recording, which may bother other people more than it does me, is that the somewhat close audio perspective makes the cellist's breathing audible.

    I'm not sure about the current availability of Kirshbaum's recording - it was reissued as a budget "twofer" a couple of times, and then in a 4 CD set coupled with Tetzlaff's first recording of the Sonatas and Partitas (also excellent, BTW). The original issue, which I have, shows up now and then on eBay.
