THE BACH SUITES: A MOVEABLE FEAST
MATT HAIMOVITZ, CELLO [ISRAEL/USA]
Some of the most moving and spiritual compositions for a solo instrument in history, Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello (1717-1723) take on new life in a program offering a brilliant musical variation on the concept of A Moveable Feast. The acclaimed Israeli-American cellist pairs each of Bach’s beloved works with newly-commissioned suites by Philip Glass, Du Yun, Vijay Iyer, and others.
The recital in the Madsen Recital Hall will include Bach Suites I, V, and VI as well as three Overtures to Bach commission pieces by Phlip Glass, David Sanford, and Luna Pearl Woolf.
