After a decade of performing the complete cycle of Bach‘s Suites for cello solo internationally, Martin Rummel recorded a version that might surprise the connaisseur: Bach‘s student Johann Peter Kellner copied the suites from what might have been Bach‘s now lost manuscript, which shows some differences to the commonly known version by Anna Magdalena Bach. A much-acclaimed recording of some of the greatest string music ever written.
