Re: The Bach Choral Dilemma

My favorite is the set by Pierre Fournier. I also recommend the Suites by
Anner Bilsma, Rostropovich, Ma, and (of course) Casals. However, all of
these cellists break up "streaming" whenever they feel that a prolonged
bass note is indicated for structural and harmonic emphasis reasons.
Because of his rhythmic vigor (which does favor streaming to arise), Ma is
maybe the streamingest cellist.

Strictly my opinion.

My wife has a recording of the cello suites by Morten Zeuter, a Danish
cellist, in which he pauses slightly before and after every bass note
and thereby destroys the streaming effect. I have always been annoyed by
that performance (I even think it got a Danish music award). Is there a
recommended recording of the cello suites?

Best regards.
