    Robin Bullock: J.S. Bach - Suites For Mandolin, Vol. One

    Dancing Wolf Records has announced the release of J.S. Bach - Suites For Mandolin, Vol. One, by Robin Bullock.

    Since their rediscovery in the late 19th century by legendary cellist Pablo Casals, Bach's Suites for Solo Cello have been celebrated as unquestioned masterpieces of the Baroque era, in the repertoire of virtually every cellist as well as being adapted for many instruments, but never before has the complete cycle been recorded on mandolin.

    This volume contains the first three Suites, performed on Gibson mandolins from 1920, 1921 and 1909 respectively, and volume two will follow with Suites four through six.

      This is a really gorgeous recording, very well played. Quite an effort to record it all.

      Anyone interested, we've posted a link to the entire collection in standard notation many times on the site. Here's that link.
