Jean-Guihen Queyras

    • Apple Music

    This recording of the most famous solo cello suites of the 20th century – in which the spirit of Bach is never very far away – marked the start of the collaboration of a very young Jean-Guihen Queyras with harmonia mundi, back in 1998. Right from this first disc, the French cellist demonstrated his supremely high artistic standards. An unqualified success!

    Jean-Guihen Queyras plays a Milanese cello, 1690.
    This title was released for the first time in 1998.
