1. Product Details
Limited Edition of Only 2000 Numbered CopiesAudiophile Direct Metal Mastering from the Original Analogue Master Tapes180 Gram Double Virgin Vinyl Pressed at Pallas in GermanyRecorded in July of 1958 and originally released on the London label cellist Jean-Max Clement performs Six Suites by Johann Sebastian Bach.He has an excellent sense of phrasing and conveys all that one needs of the dance-like character in each movement. The solemn preludes especially those of the C major and D minor Suites come off beautifully and there is plenty of contrast in timbre. Clement can develop a good sonorous tone on his C and G strings... He certainly enjoys a far better recording acoustic than Cassado. Jean-Max Clement is playing the arpeggio figures with clarity of technique excellent tone and harmonic intent. - The Grammophone MagazineThe Jean-Max Clement cycle has much to commend it. Hes a communicative player and whilst some of his tempi are generally on the slower side than we are used to today the music-making has a spontaneity leaving the favourable impression of music freshly composed and being created on the wing. He draws a big rich full-bodied sound from his instrument and his varied vibrato endows his playing with a wealth of tonal shadings. Hes not averse to the use of portamenti to obtain a particular expressive effect. Nor is he afraid of applying some tasteful rubato to enhance the line. I love the way he captures the sombre introspection of Suite No. 5 gauging to perfection the ebb and flow of the melancholy Sarabande. To the faster dance movements theres rhythmic vitality. This is certainly a premier league set in admirable sound for its age. - Stephen Greenbank Music Web International
