The Segovia Collection, Vol. 4

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Zoran Minderovic
Not only is there something timeless about Bach's music, but certain works -- particularly solo suites and partitas -- seem to elude their designated medium. As cellists and violinists know well, even a successful performance of as violin partita or cello suite leaves the player with the feeling that the music doesn't quite belong to its instrument, that it exists elsewhere. Perhaps this elusive quality of Bach's music explains why transcriptions and arrangements work so well, even when, as a result of a necessary transposition, they appear in a different key. This disc, volume four of Deutsche Grammophon's Segovia Collection, brilliantly illustrates the great ...

All Music Guide - Zoran Minderovic
Not only is there something timeless about Bach's music, but certain works -- particularly solo suites and partitas -- seem to elude their designated medium. As cellists and violinists know well, even a successful performance of as violin partita or cello suite leaves the player with the feeling that the music doesn't quite belong to its instrument, that it exists elsewhere. Perhaps this elusive quality of Bach's music explains why transcriptions and arrangements work so well, even when, as a result of a necessary transposition, they appear in a different key. This disc, volume four of Deutsche Grammophon's Segovia Collection, brilliantly illustrates the great guitarist's ability to magically transform an arrangement into a new, and by no means lesser work. Among Segovia's performances of several solo works originally written for lute, cello, and violin originally, recorded in the 1950s and 1960s, a few stand out: the "Suite for cello in C major," the Prelude from the "Suite for cello in G major," and the transcendent Chaconne from the "Partita for violin in D minor." The "Suite in C major," which Segovia plays in the bright key of A major, not only retains the enormous intellectual and spiritual richness of the original work, but also adds magical sonorities and exquisite sonic effects, including and almost legato-sounding fluidity. In his rendition of the Prelude from the "Suite for cello in G major," which requires a seamless legato execution, Segovia achieves an extraordinary sfumato effect, approaching an impossible legato guitar sound. Equally impressive is Segovia's Chaconne, which he plays with attention to minute technical details while fully conveying that work's fundamental spiritual depth and mystery.
