The fact that it only took me two months to read “The Cello Suites: J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the Search for a Baroque Masterpiece” does suggest it was pretty superior stuff. It’s the idiosyncratic account of the author’s quest to learn all he could about the Cello Suites, including taking some cello lessons. Lots of nuggets, including details about life at court in the 18th century. I just happened to glance at it on a bookshelf at Borders, and I’m glad I did.
