We alerted you the other day to a set of Bach suites, the summit of every cellist’s dream, that has been recorded for Warner by Nina Kotova, wife of the fraud-convicted co-owner of IMG Artists, Barrett Wissman.
We refrained for passing detailed comment on the playing, leaving that for specialist reviewers.
The first review has just come in. It’s by Friederike Westerhaus of NDR Kultur (north German public radio).
It’s not pretty. ‘No personality’, reads the sub-head.
Full review here (auf Deutsch). We feel sure someone will find something nicer to say.
