Overview

Paul Tortelier, born in Paris in 1914, became very well known in Britain through his remarkable program for BBC Television in which he gave to his young students so many insights into the music and its performance in the form of a master class. As a performer himself, his natural flair communicated his enthusiasm and genius to all in the audience as well as his fellow musicians; it seemed as if the cello was a natural extension of his body and he invited, as it were, the instrument to dance with him.

Whilst he had an enormous range of musical sympathies, it was to the music of Bach that he always returned -- no coincidence that he made two recordings of the six Suites, the first in 1960 in Paris and then nearly 22 years later in London. He said, in reply to a question about atonality, that music is like a locked box -- in order to get inside it you need a key!

His engaging personality and genuine love and interest in music endeared him to his many fans throughout the world and it his death at the age of only 76 was greeted with universal sadness. This 20-CD set is being released to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his death on July 18, 1990. From the Label

Paul Tortelier: The Great EMI Recordings 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Wow. A 20-disc set. This is what they advertised, a comprehensive collection of Tortelier's work. This will take weeks, months, maybe even years to listen to, but you will enjoy every second. I especially love the ninth disc with all the Don Quixote variations. Really well done. A great buy for yourself, and I would also recommend this as a great gift idea for any fan of Mr. Tortelier.
