"In Bach I, I have embarked on a journey of recording the cello repertoire, searching diligently for the most ideal interpretation of each piece," Gabriel said about the recording. "The Bach Suites are the greatest cello music we have and also represent the origin of great solo cello music. There was no better place to start than the First Suite in G Major."
