Recorded live on May 5, 2012, at Wigmore Hall, Colin Carr's recording of J.S. Bach's six Cello Suites is a remarkable demonstration of intellectual concentration, expressive consistency, and physical control that other cellists may envy. Carr's approach to these masterworks is straightforward and deeply personal, following neither historical nor modern schools of interpretation but flowing directly from his own expression in the moment. Because there are no convenient catchwords to apply to his playing, it is perhaps best to think that this is one man's vision of the suites as profound sources of inspiration, and as opportunities to show music's power to affect emotions through the subtlest means available. Carr has clearly mastered these works through incessant practice, so he can focus on playing the suites with a continuous, nuanced line, as well as with an acute sense of the counterpoint implied within the melodies. The results are penetrating interpretations that feel completely organic and whole, and one may listen to both discs in one sitting, feeling that the time has barely passed, so absorbing is Carr's playing. The reproduction is quite clean and clear for a live recording, and there are comparatively few audience sounds apart from the enthusiastic applause.

Jordi Savall: Music, life and recording

It was a rainy October night in the Bugey. On October nights, it's always raining in the Bugey. It was around midnight. There were fifty of us, waiting in the cold, the wet and the rapt silence at the Ambronay Festival. All of a sudden, and without a sound, Jordi Savall was there, sopping wet in a white raincoat, like Bogart in Casablanca, holding onto a hard case shaped like a human body. Moving slowly, he drew out not a person but a viola de gamba, which he started tuning and stringing with the greatest care. And then the miracle descended upon the auditorium.
