Details

Vinyl LP From Grammy-Award Winning Cellist!

Ma's readings of Bach are fairly liberal in rhythm and phrasing and are decidedly more intuitive than analytical, with plenty of rubato and elongation of lines to suggest something like a free Romantic interpretation, far from any Baroque period re-creation. For some listeners who are fans of historically informed or authentic performances of Bach, this may be a stumbling block; but for most, Ma's expressive playing will seem satisfactory and quite enjoyable
