On the second CD of the series which presents Johann Sebastian Bach s six cello suites Nos 2, 4 and 6 are recorded, due to the dramaturgy of the musical process, in the following sequence: No. 4 in E flat major No. 2 in D minor No. 6 in D major. The opening item, the Suite in E flat major with its festive character, strenuously complex and delicate musical material with regard to cello technique; followed by the shorter-winded, more philosophic Suite in D minor representing a sort of standstill and musing before the last Suite in D major, the most complex of the six suites concerning intricacy and size.
