Re: The Bach Choral Dilemma
I'd recommend - very highly - Yo-Yo Ma's recording of the six Cello
Suites, CBS Masterworks.
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?
Among the most beautiful and perceptually convincing examples of
melodic streaming certainly figure JS Bach's suites for solo cello
and sonatas & partita's for solo violin.
