ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Since their rediscovery in the late 19th century by legendary cellist Pablo Casals, Johann Sebastian Bach's Suites for Solo Cello have been celebrated as unquestioned masterpieces of the Baroque era, in the repertoire of virtually every cellist as well as being adapted for viola, string bass, lute, harp, classical guitar, electric guitar, marimba and even trumpet...but never before has the complete cycle been recorded on mandolin. Now, Indie Award-winning multi-instrumentalist Robin Bullock, touring sideman for many years with Grammy-winning folk icon Tom Paxton and one of the world's foremost Celtic guitar and cittern masters, explores the boundless beauty and emotion of the Suites and their ethereal lightness when transposed from cello to mandolin. The result is nothing short of magical: a feast of otherworldly music overheard from some mysterious, enchanted realm. This volume contains the first three Suites, performed on Gibson mandolins from 1920, 1921 and 1909 respectively, and volume two will follow with Suites four through six.

Doing Bach Beautifully!
With his magnificent mandolin playing, Bullock reinstates the origins of folk in classical music.

It's almost impossible to choose a Bach favorite, and this is as true for Robin's renditions of this classical composer, but SUITE 1 SARABANDE certainly does it for me - it's simply divine!

While Bullock's masterful virtuosity is present on every piece, another track that captures with it's magical tone is SUITE 1 GIGUE, and then there's SUITE 3 ALLEMANDE ...it's absolutely delicious!

Thank you Robin Bullock - this album is an opus!
