Bach : Five cello suites - Jean-Guihen Queyras

Five cello suites and an abject apology. I recorded this wonderful concert from the radio, but didn't notice that it was going out live. The concert over-ran, as live concerts do, and the timer shut off the recording just as M Queyras was on the point of playing the sixth and final suite.

So here are suites 1 to 5, beautifully played by Jean-Guihen Queyras, and lovingly recorded by France Musique in the Théâtre des Champs-Elysés in Paris on the 14th of April 2010.

  1. Thank you for posting this concert, Ronan.

    All suites with Jean-Guihen Queyras are excellent, and the D minor suite is outstanding. I'll keep an eye on this cellist. His tone is a bit nasal, but I like it here.

    How does this live version compare with his studio Bach set on Harmonia Mundi?

  2. I have the 6 suites, from the broadcasts on France Musique website (not from the radio). I am unsure how to send them to you.

  3. Thank you for the info, it is much appreciated, Lionel!

    I would be happy to have the 6 suites from Queyras's broadcasts, if there is a safe way to get them.
