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''.
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
