Nina Kotova Creates The Most Compelling Cello Performance on Her Latest Release of J.S. Bach Suites

One of the most compelling aspects of music for me is the performance. I tend to review a lot of punk, hardcore, and ska music, but jazz and classical is where I first started to appreciate music. Learning to play chimes, piano, and then bass guitar, I am a fan and a player of the art form. The beautiful music that can be created with classical tuning and instruments are incredible. It’s with that love of music that I can truly say that Nina Kotova’s release of suites for cello by J.S. Bach is incredible.

Nina Kotova is an international sensation, and has been heralded as one of the most iconic soloists in the world. She has appeared with some of the biggest names in symphony music, and performs with a certain essence that will completely change the way you hear music. There’s something profound about her work, and with this release she does something that others have tried, but haven’t really done with such precision.

On this release, you will get full suites for Cello by J. S. Bach, recorded with an incredible beauty and soul. The notes jump out at you and when you start to listen through the tracks, you will be amazed at the performance, recording, and example of iconic music. Bach’s work doesn’t need introduction, and if you’re a fan, you already know his work. However, the way Nina Kotova plays the pieces is just perfect.

While I’ve heard Yo-Yo Ma’s recording, they pale in comparison to this one. Nina Kotova has a way of playing that grabs your heart strings. It pulls you in and doesn’t let you go. I’ve heard a lot of classical music recordings, but this is played with a strength that is beyond anything I’ve heard. I’m at a loss for words. If you give this recording a chance, you will be floating, as the pieces are just compelling, integral to music as a whole and a testament to the talent and profound skill that Nina Kotova has. It’s with that in mind that I give this my highest recommendation, as there is no way to emulate this type of work.

You can get this record via amazon.com here, and learn more about the artist on the official website here. You won’t find another classical album that has such compelling compositions.

  1. Nina Kotova is such a wonderful cellist performer. First time I saw her performance at SINGAPORE SUN FESTIVAL.The sense of presence is amazing and her playing is distilled emotion.
