These three sonatas - composed originally for the viola da gamba and harpsichord - are very musically-appealing compositions. And unlike previous Baroque cahmber-music tradition, the harpsichord is not relegated to mere continuo but projected into the spotlight as co-soloist - perhaps to showcase some of Bach's keyboard virtuosity. There are several fine period recordings of these works on viola da gamba and harpsichord (Savall, Peri, Crum, Wispelwey) or modern cello with harpsichord (Ma, Tortelier). But if your taste favors all modern instuments (cello, piano), then this circa-80's CD by the legendary Martha Argerich and Misha Maisky is the ticket.

What is immediately striking about the recording is Maisky's lush and sensual cello tone and graceful progression through the music. Perhaps to some, it is not "Baroque enough" a sound with more Romantic flavor. Regardless, it is beautiful and emmensely likeable playing. Maisky's partnership here with Miss Argerich is seamless and well judged - both share enthusiastically the contrapuntal voices with equal weight and balance. Argerich's tempos and style are in-synch with both Bach's intent and Maisky's poised playing, so you won't find her sometimes "overdriven" tempos or bravura here as she finds the right center of gravity for Bach's music. Equally attractive is the bright, full and perfectly balanced sound from DG.

Penguin Guide rated this 3/3 stars, noting that those who prefer modern over period instruments will delight in this partnership and fine recording. A treat for Argerich fans. Compositions - 4.5 stars; Performance - 4.5 stars; Sound quality - 4.5 stars. PS: A 2007 recording by Bach-famed pianist Angela Hewitt with cellist Danielle Muller-Schott is also worth hearing in really excellent sound on Orfeo label.

Review by Alan Lekan, Amazon.com

Anyone requiring proof that music is subjective need look no further than the reviews of this disc. Opinions are all over the place. My own judgment comes down firmly on the positive side, but I readily admit that at least one personal bias lies behind my pronouncements as well. That prejudice is that I prefer Bach on the piano rather than the harpsichord. It wasn't always so, but somewhere along the way I found that the more modern instrument expressed to me the composer's crystalline thought better than its predecessor. One can rattle on all day about original instruments and historically informed performances, but at the end of the day the question for me is: Does it sound good? To my ears and mind, Bach's chamber works sound better on modern instruments, the piano especially. (On the other hand, when it comes to his orchestral works, or Baroque orchestral music of any kind, I invariably prefer original instruments.) So complain about the pedal work or grouse about vibrato if you wish, or pontificate all day about true Baroque performance practices. I'll admit these are unabashedly modern interpretations of three-hundred-year-old works that didn't sound like that when they were originally performed. But they remain interpretations that work, that say something, that take the germ of Bach's thought and elaborate on it from a different perspective. So there.
