Shafran Bach 6 Cello Suites BWV 1007-1012 Melodiya C10-05419-20 (3LP box set)
This handsome and exceedingly rare 3LP box set a fine collector's copy from Melodiya. Catalog numbers provided below, Russian pressing, red/black labels, stereo, booklet included features legendary Russian cellist Daniel Shafran in his exalted survey of the Bach Suites for Solo Cello, all recorded in Moscow during the years 1969 to 1975, a true landmark in the Bach discography and still among the greatest versions of these works nearly a half century on. The catalog numbering for this set is as follows. The exact contents are as follows.

Suite for Solo Cello No. 1 in G major BWV 1007 recorded in 1970. 2 in D minor BWV 1008 recorded in 1973.

3 in C major BWV 1009 recorded in 1969. 4 in E-flat major BWV 1010 recorded in 1974. 5 in C minor BWV 1011 recorded in 1974. 6 in D major BWV 1012 recorded in 1974.

The sound as a lovely bloom and resonance, as if in a warm ecclesiastical setting and the masterly playing by Shafran, which has such a remarkably vocal quality soars off the grooves. Included is the full-size, 4-page booklet with insightful liner notes by Israel Yampolsky, provided in both Russian and English. The gradations of condition I use are as follows: MINT, Near-Mint, Excellent, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor. The condition of the box is EX. There no seam splits, corner breaks, owners' markings, or other defects, and the box remains perfectly solid, bright, glossy, and highly attractive.

Overall, rates as an excellent collector's copy. The condition of the original 4-page booklet is EX there are some tiny tears to the interior pages, but no text is lost and the damage is quite minor.

The condition of the 3 LPs is EX. Though surfaces are not silent (and thus I have rated it EX vs NM), these are fine copies and playback is quite fine, with great life-like sound and presence. All LPs are provided with a new Nagaoka (or Nagaoka-style) inner sleeve. FEEDBACK: I will promptly leave feedback for all buyers.
