- Alisa Weilerstein cello
Bach’s six solo cello suites continue to provide one of the great challenges for exponents of the instrument. Alisa Weilerstein’s recording has received exceptional praise. The Guardian suggested that you ‘put Weilerstein next to most of her colleagues in these suites (competitors would be the wrong word – Bach doesn’t encourage competition), and she would win for sheer resonance of tone and length of line ... There are dozens of recordings of these suites to choose from, but this stands up with the best.’
