Bach Cello Suites.

More might be amazing...for whatever purposes.

"Tidal is amazing", as well as Qobuz might be for some others, while now there is Primephonic, which might become even more "amazing"...The competition in the field becomes a bit stiff, at least for the countries these streaming companies can offer their services.

However, even the Primephonic, which supposedly serves exclusively Classical Music, does not provide access to any major Asian label (Exton, King International, Fontec, Japanese Triton etc.) and, apparently, small individual ones from "less important" European countries or defunct labels. I also doubt whether they provide access to recordings that have gone out of print, deleted etc. The "I want it all and I want it now" has still its limitations...

Finally, "comparing interpretations" requires much more than access to a considerable number of recordings, like enough time, knowledge, repeated and thorough listening of each recording and not simply sampling tracks and listening them at the same listening session and some more.

However, they can be very fine, if their service pleases you.

Fournier and David Watkin

Fournier and Watkin are my first choices.

Anner Bylsma, Kuijken (Shoulder-Cello) are both excellent

Starker and Tortelier are part of my  "third group"

I do not like Isserlis, Meneses and Maisky
