This 2 set CD was indeed a pleasant surprise. I had intended to purchase Pablo Casals' Cello Suites, but came across this recording, sampled it with great astonishment in the store, and promptly purchased it, listening to it as soon as I entered my car. A magnificent recording, with Bruns playing on a cello made by the great master, Carlo Tononi in Venice in 1730, and which for ten years belonged to Pablo Casals. Consistently takes me to heaven. I think Casals would be proud of this 35 year old player from Berlin, and J S Bach, even more so.
