    I tend to agree, but with hundred-and-fifty options it is not among my top ten, not even among my top twenty-five.

    I haven't listened to all 150 , and of the probably dozen-or-so that I do know, I wouldn't know which one to pick really. But I do know that I like Schiff very much, and Zeuthen, both of Bylsma's recordings, and Badiarov on viola pomposa cq violoncello da spalla, all of them for various reasons which are not that easy to describe. Schiff makes me want to dance, either a quick dance or a slow one, and I like to shake my booty once in a while, so there you go.

    I'm rather surprised no one has mentioned Torleif Thedéen? His recording of the suites is quite remarkable (especially the Sarabande's), and he was also Ingmar Bergman's choice for the latter's films.

    Honestly, you could practically close your eyes and pick one. The issues I have with any one recording are minor. I purchased Gendron after listening to a few dozen on the free spotify trial. It seemed to sound right to me. Fournier and Ma I purchased because the price was right and I was in the right place. I liked them enough to spend $4 or $5. Queyras was a free download for me or I probably wouldn't have it. I've purchased others and given them away. Most likely I'll keep doing that. But I'll keep the Gendron set.

    I like fornier - he is the best "old-school " type cellist that records the Bach suites .

    I don't have that, but I was listening to his disc of the three Britten suites just the other day.

    Nor have I listened to 150 complete, only to about 80 - and one or two suites from the rest. My experience is none-the-less, that most of them are worth listening to. This makes strict recommendations difficult.

    As I said in Post #88, I found Casals to be a bit dry and uninspired. But then again, I used to find Bach and Mahler's music dry and uninspired also- so perhaps Casals will grow on me.

    So far, that's my experience, too.
    The music is great, and the musicians take their task seriously.

    I think he's better in the preludes and sarabandes, sometimes he's outstanding (prelude to 6 for example)

    I have the spotify trial thing.
    They have quite a few. I pick a suite from a different artist to play when I drive for work. And I drive half my work day.
    There are a very few that stand out, a few I really don't like, and the rest ok. Some of the standard and revered favorites I simply don't care for. Excess playing noise bugs me most.

    If you want a good but cheap download try this one. $5.99 on Amazon or Google Play. I don't know what's up with this recording. There are no reviews to be found. The user reviews on Amazon are for another artist. All i could find out is that its a 2009 release. I think it is good playing all around. I haven't purchased it, but i am enjoying it on the spotify. Cellist is Klaus-Peter Hahn. (Another fake credit guy?)
