Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Cellist Sara Sant'Ambrogio says ''Before I knew language, I knew Bach'' referring to her earliest memories of growing up in a house full of classical music. A founding member of the Eroica Trio, with recordings on Angel/EMI Classics, Sant'Ambrogio has been profiled in Strings, Strad, Gramophone, and more. She performs on a Matteo Goffriller cello, Venice, ca. 1715. The Grammy Award winner's interpretations of these cello suites has been praised by Gramophone Magazine as being ''impressively close to the soul of Bach''.

Review

There was irresistible warmth in everything Miss Sant'Ambrogio did. It translated into a special quality of sound... one has rarely heard the 'Arpeggione' played with such love. --New York Times

...performances virtually devoid of blemishes, were among the finest readings of these scores heard in this critic's lifetime of listening and study. Overall, the concerts were so good, so refined, so polished, and so engaging that one immediately thought that recordings should be made. --Classical Voice Of North Carolina

Wow- what an amazing new addition to the available recordings of these seminal works! Sant'Ambrogio's sound, phrasing, and rhythmic conception are all personal, thoughtful yet passionate, and fully conceived. After years of admiring her playing with the Eroica Trio, it is great to get a chance to hear her play solo. Anyone who likes Bach- or the cello- will want to have this. Can't wait for Part II to come out!

Something is wrong with this page. It is nominally a page for Sara Sant'Ambrogio's recording of the Bach Cello Suites (vol. 1), but the reviews on the page are devoted to Anner Bylsmer's recording of the Bach Cello Suites, not Sant'Ambrogio's. So, confusingly, we have a picture of the cover of Sara Sant'Ambrogio's CD and customer photos of Anner Bylsmer's CD. I don't expect that Amazon will correct these blunders but they at least should be pointed out.

Bach's 1, 3, and 5 are just as fantastic as his 2, 4, and 6 as played by Ms. Sant' Ambrogio. Who could ask for a more perfect sound.
