Comments:Dr. M. Ugandava said:

This recording proves that Bach can play with a touch of romantic soul and still keeping the good feel of style! Intonation sound and coordination close to perfection. I could have 5% more in voulume of the harpsichord playing but on the other hand this would have made it an unnatural sound as the cello is dominating in every live performance. Something for those that say they "have it all" in their library!!
