Hopkinson Smith: Bach Cello Suites
Naïve E 8937
Bach: (Cello) Suite #1 in G major, BWV 1007 (19:43)
Hopkinson Smith, theorbo
Hopkinson Smith has returned to the masterpieces of Bach and recorded three of the Cello Suites, transcribed by himself to the German theorbo. Along with this disc, Naïve is reissuing earlier recordings of Bach Suites. Smith is now the only musician to have recorded all of Bach’s works that can be performed on lute or similar instruments.
