J.S. Bach Six Suites for Cello Solo featuring Dmitri Atapine
In a stamina-defying performance, cellist Dmitri Atapine will take the audience on a grand tour of the crown jewels of cello repertoire: the Six Suites for Cello Solo by Johann Sebastian Bach. Since their creations around 1720, these compositions still stand at the pinnacle of achievement for any solo instrument and, when performed in one sitting, take the audience on a voyage through human emotion. A journey through the innocence of the Suite in G major, the melancholy of D minor, the joyfulness of C major, devotion of E-flat major, sorrow of C minor, and culminating in the majesty of D major. This will be an unforgettable evening and rare chance to hear these masterpieces in succession. The concert will have two intermissions.
