Purchase Manuscripts

“David Starkweather has done a superb job of clarifying many of the disputed elements in the Bach cello suites. I believe it will become the best edition along with a first class performance.”
- Bernard Greenhouse

“Pure talent as an interpreter at the devotion of music and one of the best cellists of his generation.”
- Pierre Fournier
