all 6 bach cello suites

A gem I found on youtube i couldn’t pass up sharing…ALL 6 BACH SUITES played by Jean-Guihen Queyras, an amazing French cellist. Since they are all in one video, you can listen to them from beginning to end! His sixth suite I’m especially fond of…it was out of this world when I heard it live a few months ago. He has many great recordings out…especially his Britten suites. Support him! 

     (I know everyone is picky about their Bach suites. I’m not saying this is THE way to play it, I’m just saying its A way to play it and worth a listen. If you go into it with an open mind, it won’t disappoint.)

Suite No. 2 in D minor, BWV 1008 (starts 16:23)
