“Wispelwey can certainly make these dances dance, but at the same time he gives each one a speaking eloquence” The Telegraph, UK
In this special concert Pieter Wispelwey performs the complete cello suites of Johann Sebastian Bach.
If you ever needed a sign of Bach’s genius, the cello suites just might be it. Working with one solitary instrument and following the baroque conventions of courtly dances, he wove music that was emotionally touching, intellectually purifying and spiritually inspiring. And he did it six times! In this marathon recital, Dutch cellist Pieter Wispelwey will perform all six suites. He’ll be playing a modern cello but he brings direct experience of his instrument’s baroque predecessor and all its subtlety, rhetoric and expressive power. Be there for this extraordinary one-night-only concert!
