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
