about

Cellist Kivie Cahn-Lipman releases his unique approach to Bach's seminal cello suites, informed by his work as an early music performer and balanced with his sensibility as a performer of modern repertoire. Recorded in the beautiful acoustics of Sweeney Concert Hall at Smith College in Northampton, MA by engineer Ryan Streber, this recording of the suites is both historically informed and beautifully heart felt.

J.S. Bach's holograph has been lost for centuries, and the music to the Cello Suites survives due to several eighteenth-century hand-written copies. Anna Magdalena Bach's copy has been the main source for all modern editions (and therefore all recordings) of the Suites, but it is not the oldest version, and there are subtle differences between it and other sources. This recording synthesizes both Anna Magdalena's and the other extant manuscripts and is also a hybrid of "modern" and "period-instrument" playing, influenced by what the performer considers to be the best of both worlds.
