In my very humble opinion, Pablo Casals has to be the best cellist I have ever heard. Yes, even better than Yo Yo Ma. Don’t get me wrong, I love Yo Yo Ma, but Mr. Casals does Bach like nobody’s business. Especially his Suite no 1 for Cello. I nearly wept when I first heard Pablo Casals’ rendition of Bach. There are not a lot of music that moves me, and when I do have the incredible luck of hearing it, I am grateful for it.
