5.0 out of 5 stars A grand, free, Romantic interpretation November 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Following my fairly extensive survey of versions of these master-works under my review of the new EMI issue of Casals' seminal recording, I have since listened to this, Tortelier's later, 1982 account which, to my ears, is closest in conception to that by Rostropovich. It has broad tempi, many overtly Romantic touches, great intensity and a churchy acoustic similar to that given to Slava by the Vézelay basilica. It is certainly worthy to stand beside the performances I enjoyed and recommended and once more conforms to my observation that there is any number of successful ways to interpret this music as long as it is played by a master cellist. One small caveat: I seem to be the only reviewer to comment on some suspect intonation in the very opening track, the Prelude to No. 1 - a degree of flatness obtrudes. However, this set is available very cheaply as a double CD Classics for Pleasure issue and remains highly attractive to anyone who enjoys a more traditional approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is it...! April 19, 2013
By MADC
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I own several versions on CD and I can say that I really love all of them...Yo-Yo, Casals, Starker...,etc. But this version by Tortelier really is (to me) something special. I can feel the emotions in the music in such a way that at times, tears come to my eyes. Well, this is Bach! And this is Tortelier's way of doing Bach! I just love it...

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully played February 24, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have many recordings of these Suites: they are my favourite music. This version is among the best, in my view. Others that I most enjoy (as much, but in different ways) are Fournier (perhaps my most loved), Rostropovich, Yo Yo Ma, Anner Bylsma (on Baroque Cello) and the almost romantic Maurice Gendron. What I like about Tortelier is the balance of his playing and expression in this music: he manages to have the deep emotion, but also displays a kind of aristocratic French restraint (not unlike Fournier) that keeps him from being too "earthy".

If you are buying your first ever recording of this music, you could do no better than to choose Fournier or Tortelier. This music is profound and endless and gives new things with every hearing. My only caveat is that you must accept that the Tortellier recordings (whilst very fine in my view) are not pristine modern digital versions. Having said that, I prefer this too because the analogue transcriptions have a certain warm that compensates for the lack of ultra high end (which my ears can not longer detect anyway!).

5.0 out of 5 stars The six Suites for solo cello by J.S. Bach November 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
These works are a formidable challenge for any cellist and there are several fine recordings available. I have the versions by Pierre Fournier (on Archiv DGG) and by Paul Tortelier (on EMI) in my collection and I am equally happy listening to either. I have also heard portions of the recordings by Mstislav Rostropovich and by Yo-Yo Ma, which to my ears are equally brilliant and absorbing. Each Suite is a collection of six Baroque dances: a Prelude, Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, Gavotte or Bourée or Minuet, and a final Gigue. These are 2CD collections with 3 Suites complete on each CD. I am sure you would find any of these interpretations equally spiritually uplifting, even in the slower movements.
