Oh Sweet Bach

This morning I caught one of my FAVORITE cello pieces on KMFA.  Now this is the most lovely piece of music I've heard in years. 


Charles Gounod: Ave Maria (Meditation on Bach Prelude)

Mischa Maisky, cello

Pavel Gililov, piano

DG 431544



Of course, I dug up a similar recording on youtube to share here:   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vn9qAjIgCek

Thanks to those performers!  It feels like we're right there in the studio with them.  I miss the tangibility of live sessions.

I also HIGHLY recommend a purchase of the cd above for Mr. Maisky's amazing abilities on the cello.  The quality of his performance is simply above my comment.
