Bach - Cello Sonatas BMV 1027-1029 - Maisky - Argerich on 180g Import LP
World-renowned cellist Mischa Maisky and pianist Martha Argerich beautifully perform J.S. Bach's Cello Sonatas BMV 1027-1029 in this excellent 1985 recording from Deutsche Grammophon. Mastered from the original analogue masters by Maarten de Boer and cut at Emil Berliner Studios.
"These are absorbingly interesting and emotionally satisfying works which reach their high-water mark in the expansive and very beautiful Sonata in G minor... Let me say at once that the playing of both artists is highly accomplished and is a true partnership throughout. The DG engineers have been careful not to give either instrument undue prominence over the other and that ensures both textural clarity and musical sense.
Mischa Maisky is a fine a technician with an unerring ear for intonation and a good sense of phrase. Martha Argerich's Bach playing probably needs little in the way of introduction from me – her recording of the C minor Partita is one of the finest by a pianist that I am acquainted with." - Nicholas Anderson, Gramophone
