    I have Rostropovich, Ma and Fournier. I listen to Rostropovich most often and Ma least often.

    Mine also, the papers can't get enough of it, feels almost like a hype.

    I would be interested in others reactions to either or both of these.
    The second is middle of the road HIP, cool headed. I prefer the first. In fact I like the first!

    Thank you. But I want make sure I understand. When you say the first, do you mean the first I mentioned or the first she recorded?

    The first one she recorded. The earlier one. The one which does NOT use the Matteo Goffriller (1737.) The one with the sepia cover! That's the one I like more.

    Admittedly, I have only listened to a few brief clips of each on iTunes, but I feel the opposite. The newer recording is much more interesting to me - both in sound and performance. But still, thanks for your input.

    I have listened to CD 1. The playing is elegant and dancing - in the Heinrich Schiff mood, but with a lighter touch and with more expressive agogics. A very nice interpretation.

    I have several; the one to which I most often return is the Starker on Mercury Living Presence. Also like the Bylsma, and the most recent cycle by Wispelway: https://www.amazon.com/Bach-6-Suites...TB5KT6FKDSHGV3.

    The Ma recording always sounds to me like he was double-parked during the recording sessions.

    I like his 1998 recording even more.

    Thanks, Pugg; I'll have to check it out. The one I quoted comes with a DVD documentary; quite fascinating.

    Yes, this is my favorite probably. Personally, I find both Fournier and Casals to be dry, but I do love Rostropovich- his is very Romantic, yet powerful.

    Rostropovich is anachronistically heavy and Romantic. Disappointing.

    I still find Ma's first version to be the most satisfying.
