ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Three (3) CDs included.

The Bach Solo Suites are among the greatest works ever composed. When performed on viola, the music acquires a new depth and tonal dynamic. Leslie's pairing of a modern viola with a baroque bow creates a unique warm timbre, and her interpretation is a fresh fusion of modern technique and baroque style. During her career as a recitalist, Leslie Johnson, a Juilliard graduate, has become known for her devotion to promoting chamber music, and also for performing marathon back-to-back unaccompanied Bach Suites concerts, in the old-school style from memory.

Bach Renewed
Listening to Leslie Johnson's reading of Bach's familiar Suites for Solo Cello (played here on the viola) has been such a revelation for me; it's that rare recording that makes me think I'm hearing a well-known work for the first time. Everything about it comes across as completely authentic, yet the magic combination of deliberate pacing, persuasive dynamics, and loving attention to every musical detail reveal Bach's intriguing architectural edifice as never before. And the recorded sound made me feel that I was hearing Bach from inside the viola. I have owned five different recordings of the Suites by some of the most acclaimed cellists, and in my opinion this version ranks with the very best one of them (which also happened to be by a woman).
