Octave Records Releases ‘The Complete Bach Cello Suites’ in DSD

The brand new DSD version of The Complete Bach Cello Suites by Zuill Bailey is now available from Octave Records as a download.

The Complete Bach Cello Suites Volume 1 DSD

I don’t care if you love classical music or not, but some recordings belong in every music collection. You’re depriving yourself of something truly beautiful by being closed off to it; I can’t stand 90% of rap music but I still own dozens of essential albums because they are the best recordings from the genre. The same mindset should apply to classical music and I applaud Octave Records and PS Audio for making this wonderful recording available.

This landmark recording with world-renowned cellist, Zuill Bailey, is a new interpretation of Bach’s cello suites and is available in both stereo and multi-channel formats.

PS Audio’s Octave Records label is honored to announce its latest pure DSD high-resolution audio release, The Complete Bach Cello Suites by world-renowned cellist Zuill Bailey. Recorded and mixed in stereo and multichannel sound, the six unaccompanied cello suites are a cornerstone of the classical cello repertoire, and Bailey offers a compelling new interpretation of Bach’s masterworks informed by decades of immersion in the suites, and the personal and emotional impact Bailey felt from the pandemic.

Mr. Bailey is widely considered to be one of the world’s premier cellists. He is a Grammy award-winning performer, artistic director and teacher. Bailey has collaborated with such conductors and artists as Itzhak Perlman, Stanislav Skrowaczewski, Jaime Laredo, János Starker, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra and others.

Because Bach left no musical annotations in the score, the interpretive skill of the performer is vital to making the music come alive. Bailey first recorded the suites in 2008 on the Telarc label. More than a decade later, these Octave Records performances reflect Bailey’s mature yet daring approach, captured with remarkable realism in stunning high-resolution sound.

The Complete Bach Cello Suites was recorded at the Ikeda Theater in the Mesa Arts Center in Mesa, Arizona for Octave Records by Robert Friedrich of Five/Four Productions, Ltd. with co-engineer Gus Skinas, and produced for Octave Records by Five/Four’s Thomas Moore, a Grammy award winner. It was recorded, mastered and mixed using Five/Four REVEAL SDM™ pure DSD technology.

The Complete Bach Cello Suites is available in three versions: as a complete set of all six Suites, or a set with Suites 1, 3 and 5, or as a set with Suites 2, 4 and 6. The sets will include hybrid SACD discs with a master stereo and multichannel DSD layer and a CD layer, plus a DVD data disk with high-res PCM and DSD files. In addition, the album is available as a download bundle including DSD64, 192kHz/24-bit, 96kHz/24-bit and 44.1kHz/24-bit PCM. Detailed technical information is available here.
