Original recordings made with three Schoeps M201 omni-directional microphones. Recorded on Ampex 300 half-inch 3-track recorders at 15 inches per second. First-generation tapes were transferred to produce this high-definition download.

On these historic recordings, internationally-renowned cellist Janos Starker delivers Bach’s six suites for solo cello and sonatas with technical expertise and authenticity. He is sympathetically accompanied by pianist György Sebök on the two sonatas. All captured with the pristine sound associated with the Mercury Living Presence series.
