Bach: Suites for Unaccompanied Cello

Bach: Suites for Unaccompanied Cello

Guy Fishman, Baroque Cello

Bach composed his six suites for unaccompanied cello in 1720 at a time when few composers of his stature were exploring the technical and expressive qualities of the instrument.  These beautiful masterpieces have retained their place as the centerpiece of every cellist's repertoire for the last 100 years, and have been performed and recorded by every major artist of the last century.  Guy Fishman is Principal Cellist of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society, the nation's oldest continuously-running arts organization.  Hear him perform three of the suites amidst the intimate beauty of the Shattuck Gallery on a magnificent Roman instrument built in 1704 by David Tecchler.

Program includes:  

Domenico Gabrielli's 7 Ricercari for unaccompanied violoncello
Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite no. 2 in d minor for unaccompanied violoncello, BWV 1008 and Suite no. 4 in E-flat major for unaccompanied violoncello, BWV 1010

 

Ticket Price: $25

Chasing Coral

Chasing Coral

 

Join us for a film that inspired one of our exhibiting artists! 

Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an ad man, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record bleaching events as they happen. Unfortunately, the effort is anything but simple, and the team doggedly battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves. With its breathtaking photography, nail-biting suspense, and startling emotion, Chasing Coral is a dramatic revelation that won't have audiences sitting idle for long.

 

 

We will have Robert Max Holmes, a scientist from the Woods Hole Research Center to discuss and introduce the movie.

Dr. Holmes is an earth system scientist who studies rivers and their watersheds and how climate change and other disturbances are impacting the cycles of water and chemicals in the environment. He is particularly interested in the fate of the vast quantities of ancient carbon locked in permafrost in the Arctic, which may be released as permafrost thaws, exacerbating global warming. Dr. Holmes has ongoing projects in the Russian, Canadian, and Alaskan Arctic, and in the tropics in the Amazon and the Congo. He is committed to engaging students in his research projects and to communicating the results and implications of his research to the public and to policy-makers. Dr. Holmes recently served for two years as Program Director of the National Science Foundation's Arctic System Science Program and in 2015 was named National Fellow of the Explorers Club.

Join us for the opening reception of our Solastalgia exhibit!

Solastalgia postcard design_Revise_spelling fix_Final.jpg

Solastalgia, a term which combines “solace” and “pain”, is defined as, “the pain experienced when there is recognition that the place where one resides and that one loves is under immediate assault . . . a form of homesickness one gets when one is still at ‘home.’ ” (Glenn Albrecht, 2007). That juxtaposition – our attachment to the beauty and comfort of a known place with a sense of anticipated/observed/concurrent loss – generates appreciation and anxiety. Will the trill and thrum of the natural world be altered, silenced, replaced? What is transience, relative to our human observations?

 

 

All Receptions are FREE and open to the public
