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.
