I do suggest that you listen to them because they are a gorgeous performance. Nobody can explain the Bach cello suites. Though I'm sure he knew the basics of the instrument, it was not one of his. In a contrapuntal sense, they are all but impossible. No cellist in his own time is known to have accomplished them, which alas is true of the performance of a great deal of his music. I mean, could Goldberg actually play the hardest passages of the Goldberg Variations?
There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
