"A beautiful, innovative, engaging voice"
Professor Mieke Bal, Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences

Three hundred years ago J.S. Bach wrote six magical suites for solo cello. For cellists, playing all six is often seen as the ‘Mount Everest’ of the cello repertoire, but rarely are they performed by such a diverse collection of artists using a wide variety of approaches to the master’s spectacular work. Three suites exemplify the beauty of traditional solo cello format, while three suites burst to life through innovative interpretations incorporating elements of dance, theater, jazz or voice offering audiences a one-of-a-kind encounter with this timeless body of work.
