Zoe Knighton's Bach Suites “wonderfully insightful and of assured musicianship”
Gordon Kerry has given a glowing and detailed review of Zoe Knighton's "Bach Cello" CD in the Music Trust e-zine.
“Zoe Knighton’s Bach Suites recording is wonderfully insightful and of assured musicianship. It joins a number of distinguished new Bach recordings by Australian artists such as Slava Grigoryan.
“Knighton has produced a reading of great artistic integrity.”

The debate still rages about the origins and intention behind these suites. Were they written for the cellist of the court (Christian Ferdinand Abel and Christian Bernhard Linke) where Bach was employed at the time? Were they written for a strange instrument called a violoncello de spalla?
