The first monaural recording of Bach’s Six Suites BWV 1007-1012, played with the great unaccompanied five stringed cello, regarded as a reference for the modality, was performed in France in 1953, on the Ducretet-Thomsom label, in a performance at Villandry Castle, and, as an interpreter, the virtuous celist Annlies Schmidt-de Neveu, who dedicated the interpretation and recording to her master Emmanuel Feuermann. -Saulo Zucchello
