We're kicking off 2019 with a bang with an exploration of the Bach Cello Suites. These pieces represent the apex of the path of every cellist. We'll go through the history of the Suites, including their disappearance, rediscovery, and now ubiquity. We'll then look at one movement from each of the Suites, comparing the wildly different approaches that cellists have taken since the first recordings appeared in 1939. You'll also learn what HIP means in the context of classical music! Thanks for listening!
