The cello sonatas have been sadly neglected in the shadow of the suites, with only the famous Allegro Moderato emerging now and then in arrangements; but it's still excellent music, and this recording is superb. Maisky may not have the following of Yo-Yo Ma or Rostropovich, but I think he's one of today's finest cellists. He produces an absolutely beautiful sound on every note in every piece he plays. Martha Argerich brings out the piano line with the same philosophy of note-for-note beauty; together they are unstoppable. Do yourself a favor and listen to this recording; thereafter you'll want to hear it for years to come.

On the heels of my recent listening to the Ma/Cooper non-performances of these works, I can heartily recommend the Maisky/Argerich coupling--- and especially for those not averse to having piano substituted for harpsichord. Maisky is in top form, his 'cello warm and rich, his emotion just right; Argerich accompanies faithfully, without overshadowing her partner, yet always bringing something new to the music. The recording is rich, true and completely tangible. This is a splendid CD in every way.

These three sonatas - composed originally for the viola da gamba and harpsichord - are very musically-appealing compositions. And unlike previous Baroque cahmber-music tradition, the harpsichord is not relegated to mere continuo but projected into the spotlight as co-soloist - perhaps to showcase some of Bach's keyboard virtuosity. There are several fine period recordings of these works on viola da gamba and harpsichord (Savall, Peri, Crum, Wispelwey) or modern cello with harpsichord (Ma, Tortelier). But if your taste favors all modern instuments (cello, piano), then this circa-80's CD by the legendary Martha Argerich and Misha Maisky is the ticket.

What is immediately striking about the recording is Maisky's lush and sensual cello tone and graceful progression through the music. Perhaps to some, it is not "Baroque enough" a sound with more Romantic flavor. Regardless, it is beautiful and emmensely likeable playing. Maisky's partnership here with Miss Argerich is seamless and well judged - both share enthusiastically the contrapuntal voices with equal weight and balance. Argerich's tempos and style are in-synch with both Bach's intent and Maisky's poised playing, so you won't find her sometimes "overdriven" tempos or bravura here as she finds the right center of gravity for Bach's music. Equally attractive is the bright, full and perfectly balanced sound from DG.

Penguin Guide rated this 3/3 stars, noting that those who prefer modern over period instruments will delight in this partnership and fine recording. A treat for Argerich fans. Compositions - 4.5 stars; Performance - 4.5 stars; Sound quality - 4.5 stars. PS: A 2007 recording by Bach-famed pianist Angela Hewitt with cellist Danielle Muller-Schott is also worth hearing in really excellent sound on Orfeo label.

Anyone requiring proof that music is subjective need look no further than the reviews of this disc. Opinions are all over the place. My own judgment comes down firmly on the positive side, but I readily admit that at least one personal bias lies behind my pronouncements as well. That prejudice is that I prefer Bach on the piano rather than the harpsichord. It wasn't always so, but somewhere along the way I found that the more modern instrument expressed to me the composer's crystalline thought better than its predecessor. One can rattle on all day about original instruments and historically informed performances, but at the end of the day the question for me is: Does it sound good? To my ears and mind, Bach's chamber works sound better on modern instruments, the piano especially. (On the other hand, when it comes to his orchestral works, or Baroque orchestral music of any kind, I invariably prefer original instruments.) So complain about the pedal work or grouse about vibrato if you wish, or pontificate all day about true Baroque performance practices. I'll admit these are unabashedly modern interpretations of three-hundred-year-old works that didn't sound like that when they were originally performed. But they remain interpretations that work, that say something, that take the germ of Bach's thought and elaborate on it from a different perspective. So there.

I am a little put off by versions of these viola da gamba sonatas when the keyboard part is played on a harpsichord, especially a loud, banging harpsichord. This version uses a piano instead of a harpsichord. Ms. Argerich's piano playing is beautiful. She is a Bach genius. For me, in this recording the cello is icing on the piano cake. The two of them play beautifully together, somehow giving each other space to be expressive while keeping a reasonably brisk but still reverent tempo.

This really is an extraordinary recording. I would give every track a 4 or 5 on a scale of 5. Very accessible, too, for those (like me) just venturing beyond the Bach standards.

That said, I like the Angela Hewitt 2007 recording (with Daniel Muller-Schott) a little better. Ms. Hewitt's is more clean and clear. In comparison the Argerich/Maisky disc is a teeny bit muddy. If I had to choose one, it would be worth the hassle of tracking down the Hewitt disc as opposed to the immediate gratification of downloading the Argerich recording. But if I never heard the Hewitt version, I would be happy forever with the Argerich recording.
