JS Bach: Two Cello Suites
Live Friday, 5th September at 8pm
Online 11–27 September
Jonathan Manson cello
With short preludes by Vitali and D.Gabrielli
When JS Bach set out to pen the first unaccompanied dance suites ever written for the fashionable new violoncello, he could not have imagined that they would become some of the most celebrated music of the whole century. In this perfect balm to a summer of worry, Jonathan Manson (who performed last year with Trevor Pinnock) explores the contrast between the brooding melancholy of the second suite in D minor and the majestic brilliance of the third suite in C major.
