"The recording beautfilly reveals Zuill Bailey's virtuosity as a cellist and gives this gift of music exceptional clarity.
It is a recording that skillfully documents Bailey's amazing technical facility and flawless command of his instrument, the “rosette” 1693 Matteo Goffriller cello."  - Examiner.com

Zuill Bailey "DVORAK Cello Concerto"

"Until now, the recording to recommend was the celebrated DG version featuring the partnership of Rostropovich and Karajan, ideally coupled with Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations. But this wonderfully spontaneous new version by Zuill Bailey and Jun Markl tends to sweep the board."- Gramophone Choice

Zuill Bailey - Brahms

Bailey says, "Of all the records I've made, this is the one I'm most proud of. It was a great experience working in the studio with one of my oldest friends, and I feel like Awadagin and I really caught the comet's tail on this one - it was intense, that's for sure. We worked incredibly hard, and we recorded about 80 minutes of music, trying to encompass everything Brahms does, from the boldly passionate to the beautifully lyrical."

 

Zuill Bailey - BACH CELLO SUITES

“A virtuoso technique, strong, richly expressive tone and a bold, individual manner of playing all result in memorable performances. On an emotional level he's deeply involved in the music; the Sarabandes not only sound beautiful but...develop an intensely expressive character.”- Gramophone Magazine, May 2010

"...From the first notes, this disc commands attention above most others currently available and might be headed for classic status thanks to the combination of vision, temperament, and technique that comes together to great effect....Bailey puts a sympathetic but highly personal imprint on nearly every bar. Each movement accumulates tension effectively. Even the lighter dance movements show Bailey amusing himself as surely as Bach did while writing them. His rich-toned instrument is caught beautifully by the Telarc engineers, and Bailey's technique is such that no movement is too intricate for his stylish details."- David Patrick Stearns - Philadelphia Inquirer

"The recording market is flush with accounts of Bach's six suites for solo cello. Few, though, rival Zuill Bailey's interpretations here in terms of vitality or vividness. Wielding an Italian instrument from 1693, Bailey gets to the beating heart of every plaintive Sarabande and jaunty Gigue with a rich, broad tone and diverse expressive palette. Bailey's mission is to underscore the music's brilliance, but he ends up proving his own as well." - Zachary Lewis - Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Joyous, meditative,lyrical, sorrowful, amiable, exuberant, swaggering, solemn and regal by turns, the Suites provide a little
something for everyone, and Bailey projects all of their many moods in what is probably the best-sounding recording
of the works currently available."- Classical Candor
