Bach: Cello Suites 1-3
18 May 2018
Other participants: Heinrich Schiff
Spellbinding masterpieces: For a long time cellists considered them almost unplayable; now they call them the "Bible" of their instrument. There is little doubt that Bach's Six Suites rank among the greatest things ever written for the cello. They demand maximum virtuosity and musicality from the player, probing every facet of the instrument with an almost inexhaustible wealth of sounds.
