Bach’s suites are akin to the Mount Everest of the cello repertoire: unalterable, foundational, cathedral-like, and magnetic for performers and music lovers alike. Cello virtuosa Alisa Weilerstein, back at the Festival after more than a decade, beckons us to an awesome marathon: the performance of the complete cycle of six suites in two consecutive evenings. Come hear one of the absolute monuments of the cello repertoire.
Johann Sebastian Bach,
Cello Suite No. 4 in E-flat major, BWV 1010
Cello Suite No. 5 in C minor, BWV 1011
Cello Suite No. 6 in D major, BWV 1012
