Cellist Mischa Maisky performs Cello Solo Suites 1-6 by J.S. Bach on this 180g 3LP Box Set.
 
Born in 1948 in Riga, Latvia, Mischa Maisky received his first music lessons there at the Children’s Music School and Conservatory. In 1962 he entered the Leningrad Conservatory. In 1965 his debut with the Leningrad Philharmonic earned him the nickname “Rostropovich of the Future”. One year later he was a prizewinner at the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and began his studies with Rostropovich at the Moscow Conservatory while pursuing a concert career throughout the former Soviet Union. After being imprisoned in a labour camp near Gorky for 18 months in 1970, he emigrated from the USSR.
 
In 1974, he studies with the legendary Gregor Piatigorsky, thus becoming the only cellist to have studied with both Piatigorsky and Rostropovich.
 
In 1985, he signed his first exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon where recorded Schumann’s Concerto with Bernstein and the Wiener Philharmoniker (released 1986) and Bach’s Cello Sonatas with Martha Argerich and Bach’s Six Solo Suites.
There are many ways of playing Bach — the austere and the mathematical or the deliberately simple have dominated in recent years — in an attempt to recapture the style of the unknown soloist for whom he wrote these peculiarly beautiful works.
 
Mischa Maisky's second recording, based on years of study of the scores, opts for a more passionate, almost Romantic approach — this is a Bach all about expression and dance, and the gestures here are big gestures. Maisky's commitment to his reading is absolute and carries real conviction — he plays the suites as the work of a musician of incomparable gifts, not a machine or a demigod. Even those who prefer a more intellectualized Bach will have to accept his earthy approach as a possible reading. Maisky's edition of the suites is included here for the first time on 180-gram vinyl.
