An emotional recording. As an example, the sarabande from the sixth suite lasts 5:16. More than a minute more than most others. I hear melodies in this interpretation that I don't hear in others.The prelude to the first is especially lovely.

The budget price is the best appeal to this series. Excellent historical recording, mastering and performance. The inlay notes are a very good guide trough this beautiful music. This is not Rostropovich, but Janigro's cello feelings are some of the very best I have ever heard. All the Courante pieces are perfectly performed, as well as the final Gavotes.
