Cello Suites Recommendation

5587 Views 23 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  cna
I know I have been asking for a lot of advice recently, but if I'm doing it is precisely because the advice that I'm receiving in this web is being absolutely outstanding so far.

That being said, I'd like to ask you guys if you could recommend some composer whose Cello Suites are really worth giving a try to. I don't really know many. I only know Bach's (I own a live version of his Cello Suites performed by Rostropovich which is OK I guess, but I listened to a Fournier's rendition last week at a friend's house and really liked it) and Britten's (again Rostropovich). Are there any other brilliant Cello Suites that I am missing?? Any other recommendation for Bach's and Britten's??

Fournier is really good, probably the best all round recommendation. He really makes the music dance. Casals is, of course, important for its hisirical value. I can remember a concert at the Wigmore Hall where Rafael Wallfisch played three of the suites. Memorable evenng. Who but Bach could wrote such music?
