On Melodiya and also DOREMI Legendary
Treasures. Anyone have it? How is it?
I cannot speak about the recordings,
however having heard Shafran perform
the Bach Cello Suites live I cannot
imagine any reason to skip this CD
unless it is totally unlistenable.
Shafran's way with Bach is unique
and riveting -- as with everything
else he played -- even if not likely
to be everyone's cup of tea.
For context, besides Shafran I
heard the following cellists
live in the Bach Suites:
From this list I liked Shafran,
Tortelier and Cassado the best.
I did not like Casals or Starker,
and I was lukewarm about Slava.
