    Artistic Rendering of the Suites

    I picked this collection of the 6 cello suites based on Haimovitz's dynamic and captivating interpretation of the first movement to the first suite. I download performances of the prelude to Suite 1 by several artists. I felt most played it too fast with little dynamicism or feeling. Some of them were wooden and metronomic and one was even played an octave or two high, so that the gorgeous depth of the cello was lost altogether. This is not a piece to be rushed. I found Haimovitz's version to be contemplative and evocative it produced the mood this piece needs. The rest of the suites are equally lovely.
