One instrument. Solo. Over two centuries of music and a tribute to the string instrument with the gift of the human voice.
A journey from Bach’s polyphony to Max Reger’s late romantic reinvention of the suite, all the way to the lesser known Weinberg, whose music brings to us today the turmoil of the twentieth century.
Three distinct styles through which the cello touches the most profound human emotions.
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) Suite in D minor BWV 1008
Max Reger (1873-1916) Suite in D minor op. 131 no.2
Miecyslaw Weinberg (1919-1996) Sonata for cello solo no.1
