Special Feature: also including in the digipack are two CDs with the complete Audio recording of the suites

  • A winning combination for this recording is provided by the majestic background of the Bavarian Alps, the tiny pilgrimage church of St. Servatius and the highly skilled Swiss cellist with Taiwanese roots, Wen-Sinn Yang. This is the centre stage for Bach’s gorgeous Six Suites for Solo Violoncello composed in 1720.

  • Written during Bach’s time in Köthen, the Suites are one of the most important series for this instrument and a big challenge for every cellist, providing a well-balanced combination of sacral and secular music.

  • Wen-Sinn Yang’s play can be characterized as technically at the highest level with a lovely, full sound and impeccable intonation. He penetrates completely the philosophical dimensions of the music he plays. Therefore it is possible for him to interpret the Suites in his very unique and accomplished way.

“There's real feeling in his music making, a sense of genuine connection with the spirit of the music … his cello sings with almost human expressiveness” Classics Today

“Yang has an immaculate technique, with perfect intonation, and his freedom in Dvorák’s melodic writing gives the performances an extra degree of persuasiveness and individuality.” Gramophone, 2004
