Comments:Aglaja Thiesen said:

The Celloist Jörg Baumann played in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra from 1966 to 1995 and became Solocelloist in 1975 under conduction of Herbert von Karajan He was also founder of the philharmonic duo (Jörg Baumann and Klaus Stoll).
The recording of the 6 Suites is very natural and almost a bit rough, not following the very romantic interpretations from the 1980's.
