Please try again later. One of the best. Audio CD Verified Purchase. Out of recording of Bach’s cello suites I own, Cassado’s version may be the one I listen the most. I feel that it has the right balance between expression, speed, intonation, and also very reasonable technical audio quality, both the actual sound and the recording room acoustics.

Casals is off course excellent but the casdado recording noise can get in the way sometimes; Fournier has advantage of perfect sound recording quality but may have less expression then I’d sometimes welcome, or expression and speed that I find undesirable. However, they’re really all great recordings and so it’s hard to judge – apparently depends on one’s taste and mood – but, if you don’t have Cassado yet, it’s worth to have a look at it.


For record – I’m amateur listener. MP3 Music Verified Purchase. I play it a lot for background music. The instrument celllo amazing. It has so many strings I wonder how anyone was able to play it. I wonder how he ever found one. Bach csasado always a winner with me. Would you believe, Siite actually found the original 3 LPs from in mint condition at a church fair for 25 cents? After a little syite I was able acssado find the cds of the recording on amazon and was delighted to buy them knowing nothing about Cassado or the suites before finding the records.

Much cheaper that Ma or Casals recordings of the same Bach suites that run about gsspar dollars. This is a finely recorded and played, remastered high-definition 20 bit sound recording originally recorded from analog tapes from that VoxFox recording played by the composer and virtuoso cellist, Gaspar Cassado. It sounds like it was recorded yesterday.

How does Cassado’s recording rate against the likes of Ma and Casals’s? Well, I’ve heard bits of all three playing these Bach cello Suites, and I am pretty much sure that Ma probably celpo technical mastery that slightly beats out Casals and Cassado who are both excellent in their own rights.

However, as we all know, interpretation is by far the more important virtue when choosing between professionals musicians where playing flawlessly is a perequisite.

Gaspar Cassadó: Suite

The experienced Cassado 60 when he made this recording handily beats out the “spunky” Ma at least in the playing of these Bach suites in the expression department. The difference between Cassado and Casals is less pronounced Casals is also a very impassioned cellistand so personal preferences are the only thing that separate the two. I prefer Cassado; but then I am not a very experienced reviewer of solo cello music.

These siute were great. And the five stars I gave them, means that if you like Bach as well as cello music, this is a must have. If you don’t know anything about either, I can at least recommend it as being great background music for a romantic dinner.

I’m not sure why ssuite recording receives 5-star reviews, except for nostalgic reasons. Inthere were few recordings of these works – I believe Casals and possibly Starker were the only cfllo recorded options – so at that time, this was a better choice than it is now, when virtually every cellist of any fame has recorded them.


Cassado’s playing is competent, but much of the music is played in a plodding, metronomic manner with little rubato and very little attempt to vary phrasing enough to hold interest. Cassado’s tone is, by modern standards, pretty ordinary.

The recording, by standards, is adequate. I suppose that this set might be suitable for someone studying these works, seeking a recording that plays the notes with a cazsado of interpretation. But I suspect that most people want more than that, and there are limitless other recordings that provide a great deal more in terms of interpretation, cello tone, and sonics.

Gaspar Cassado’s interpretation of Bach’s Cello Suites is simply outstanding.

Bach: 6 Suites for Solo Cello – Gaspar Cassadó | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

Not because of Cassado’s technique which is amazing – and he was 60but for the fact that there is a general feeling of noble melancholy and virility that cellp these suites and highlights their intense, almost painful beauty. However, make sure you listen first to Maurice Gendron or Pierre Fournier – sometimes, Cassado shows a very idiomatic approach which may not appeal to newcomers. Highly recommended – pour les connaisseurs. See all 7 reviews.
