This set brings together two albums of modern music for solo cello played by Emmanuelle Bertrand. The first disc, Bertrand's début release on harmonia mundi, features works by Dutilleux, Crumb, Henze, Ligeti and Bacri. The second, released under the title Le violoncelle parle (the Cello Speaks), includes Suites for Solo Cello by Britten and Cassado and Kodaly's Sonata for Solo Cello. In Bertrand's hands, the cello truly 'speaks' and takes us beyond geographical boundaries and straight to the heart of the language of cultural inspiration.
During the final years of his life, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) created the monumental body of music that can be considered his “Testament”, comprising the Musical Offering, the Art of Fugue and the B minor Mass. This latter work is a perfect synthesis of all his skill and flair in the art of composition (and essentially in that of counterpoint), as well as his gift for invention and his extraordinary sense of form, structure and number.

Gran parte del materiale cosi raccolto venne pubblicato sotto forma d'articoli che rappresentavano soltanto determinate fasi del suo lavoro e delle sue esperienze, oppure sottoforma di collezioni che interessavano un mondo assai vasto di studiosi, ma oltrepassavano le cognizioni e le richieste dei lettori di media cultura.
