    Currently, I'm listening to Truls Mørk perform the cello suites on Spotify. I find this recording to be quite fine... very "musical" and fluid without ever becoming too fast as some performances do... or fail to suggest the darker or more somber elements of the suites.

    I have 12 sets of the Bach Cello Suites. I always seem to come back to the first Yo-Yo Ma set. For me, definitive.

    I somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 versions of the cello suites as well. Yo-Yo Ma's first recording of the suites was my first set as well and I had the good fortune to have seen him perform the whole suites in person. Even so, while I still quite admire the set, my first choices for the suites are usually those by Pierre Fournier and the 5th recording by Starker.

    Cool story. I'm sure that must have been a memorable experience!

    I've seen Gautier Capucon doing one, as an encore, does that count also?

    Never heard the Fournier. A lot of vibrato?

    I picked up a Fournier recently on a bargain. Gendron is still my favorite by a slim margin.

    I have Starker, and Rostropovich, but haven't listened to them yet.

    I think the Pablo Casals recordings that made these part of the performance repertoire are my models.

    I have the Yo-Yo Ma, and also John Williams playing them on guitar
