Cello Suites

Bach, J S: Cello Suites Nos. 1-6, BWV1007-1012

Performed by Richard Tunnicliffe (Cello)

Richard Tunnicliffe has made a special study of Bach’s cello suites, and his performances of all six suites have been acclaimed in Europe and Australia as well as at numerous venues in Great Britain, including Wigmore Hall and the Purcell Room in London.

It is clear that strong performance experience, virtuosity and individuality are all required when tackling J.S. Bach’s cello suites; Richard Tunnicliffe brings a lifetime of insight to his debut solo recording. I listened to some of these suites today, and I like Mr. Tunnicliffe’s playing very much.

Mr. Tunnicliffe has played with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Boston Symphony, Frankfurt Radio S.O., City of Birmingham S.O., English National Opera, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, the London Mozart Players, The Gabrieli Consort and the Academy of Ancient Music.
