GG: Bach, non-keyboard works

I'd like to cast my vote for the recent recording of the unaccompannied 
cello suites by Mstislav Rostropovich. I am a trombonist, and my main 
teacher was a student at Eastman in the late fifties, when all the 
trombonists were made to study the cello suites. At any rate, they were 
passed on to me and as a result I am intimately faimilar with them. 
Rostropovich plays them beautifully and skillfully, and his 
interpretations are precisely how I have always imagined the peices 
should be played (not that that means a thing, to be sure).
