Bach Cello Suites Celebrate 300 Years of Bach at Troy Music Hall March 7th
J.S. Bach composed his Six Suites for Solo Cello around 1720 and they remain the Everest of the cello repertoire to this day. Troy Savings Bank Music Hall is hosting a concert celebrating 300 years of this iconic music March 7th at 7:30 pm.
Concert Cellist and Artistic Director of the Bach Cello Suites Workshop, Matt Haimovitz, headlines the concert and is joined by the pioneering multi-style cellist, singer, composer, and educator, Mike Block, and the dynamic, innovative and eloquent Ashley Bathgate. The three exceptional cellists will play a captivating and illuminating variety of solo, duet and trio pieces that underscore the deep influence of J.S. Bach’s Cello Suites on them and how that music fuels their artistry today.
The concert will feature a wide sweep of music from a complete Bach Cello Suite, to contemporary works inspired by and composed in tribute to Bach, to the world premiere of a dance in homage to J.S. Bach choreographed by the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company.
