Bach cello suites, not many female cellist have done it but there are a few have actually recorded more than once in the past. She is one of those.

Chopin project.

Many people know Alice Sara Ott (piano), Olafur Arnalds (piano/synthesizers), but I wanna mention there’s also lesser known musicians in the recording - Mari Samuelsen (violin), and also a string quintet in support.

Roberte Mamou - John Field: 15 Nocturnes -- yoinked this CD recently for $1 ... apparently the Irishman Mr Field wrote the first nocturnes (short romantic lyrical piano pieces) back in the early 1800s, but then along came Chopin with his nocturnes and ballades and mazurkas and whatnot and everyone kinda forgot the O.G. Nocturninator. To be fair, Chopin really did take Field's style much further, so these pieces are mainly of historical interest, but still not a bad listen.

Peitro Spada - John Field: Complete Piano Music -- I'd only just discovered the Irish composer John Field last week when I picked up a CD of nocturnes (see a few posts above) and today I stumble upon this 6xCD box of the complete piano works for $2.  It looks like a budget set by a competent pianist, maybe not the best interpretations out there but one can't quibble with the quantity of music here.

Viktoria Mullova,  Bach, 6 Solo Sonatas & Partitas. Onyx Classics ‎ ONYX 4040.  2 × CD Europe 2009.

Enjoying this rendition of the 6. See music web review:

With risk of behaving like a comparison nerd, how do you feel this sits amongst the vast universe of other options (or at least the most renowned)?  [note to self: you are undoubtedly a comparison nerd].

 

I am always rewarded by returning to Mullova's interpretations, but I sense it is not  seen as "up there" when people rattle off prominent versions, and not quite sure that is a "fair" reflection (whatever that is).    I quite like the balance of her performance - intense, conveys strong emotion, doesn't wander into the sentimental (Perlman, Shaham?) and while strongly technical shuns the "coldness" which i feel at times with early Kremer and Tognetti (as examples). And recording quality is well regarded as attested by your link.
