    agree with this choice wholeheartedly, if only one could get the Casals in the recording quality of the Rostropovich but my guilty pleasure is the double bass recording of the transposed cello suites by Paolo Pandolfo his music you can taste

    How fortunate we are to have so many wonderful and varied recordings to choose from, each with their own attractions and emphases. Current favourite is Richard Tunnicliffe.

    Very, very fortunate, something for everyone I would say.

    Can't stop myself. Picked up the Yo-Yo Ma, Inspired by Bach set for a few bucks. Which is his set I prefer.

    I do a lot of driving for work and will stop at a goodwill or thrift shop if I can. There are always cds. I've made some good purchases.

    Nice thread. I finally found some Bach I really want to get into and came here for suggestions. Plenty to mull over!

    Oh, I'll only buy one version, no need to be hasty! Jacqueline DuPre was recommended to me, but I couldn't find it in town this morning.

    Interestingly, didn't see her mentioned here, which suggests she may not have a set of discs for this work...

    I have the EMI box set of her recordings. It includes a couple of the Suites, but not the entire cycle.

    You say that now. Let us know in a year or so.

    I had the Rostropovich version for a long time as my only one. Then I heard some others on my Prime account and started exploring. Rostropovich is now gone, sold or given away, along with some others I acquired and didn't like as well in the long run. Right now I have versions by Yo-Yo Ma (1997 set), the partial set by Meyer, Fournier, Gendron, Queyras, Blysma, Linden, and Lipkind. Most likely I will give away the Blysma and Linden sets. There is nothing wrong with them, other than they don't stand out for me like the others, plus I like giving beautiful music away to friends and family.

    A lot of people don't much care for the Lipkind or Meyer interpretations, but I do. So much different from the others that I find them refreshing. Ma gets slammed on TC by some but I think he is a master in this work as are Fournier and Gendron. Queyras has astounding sound. If I had to choose only one, though, it would still be Gendron.

    Gendron is about the cheapest set secondhand on Amazon these days - astonishing value. And I agree with you about Fournier, Ma, Queyras.
    Having listened to little else than these cello suites for the last three months, my favourite recording is often the one I'm currently listening to. But I think truly outstanding is the set by Nina Kotova, on the Stradivarius which Jacqueline du Pre used to use.

    Wow. That's a lot of listening.
    Presto classical lists about 200 offerings of Cello Suites. Many of the cellist I've not heard of.

    Intuitive and animal. Deep cello. Thanks for pointing it out.

    How correct you were! I bought the version by Janos Starker on Sony (RCA Red Seal), I think recorded in 1997? It's quite deliberate and ponderous, and slightly moody too, all of which I like, but I'll try the Gendron one too...

    Casals is my favorite. Rostropovich is up there. For some reason, I'm not Yo-Yo Ma's greatest fan.
