~ Person


It is worth noting that Wispelwey has released at least 3 separate recordings of the Bach cello suites (one in 1990, one in 1998, and one in 2012) so don't arbitrarily merge recordings without checking first!

Pieter Wispelwey (born 25 September 1962) is a Dutch cellist. In 1992, he was the first cellist to receive the Netherlands Music Prize, a government-awarded prize given to the most promising young musician in the Netherlands.
