About

Program

  • Johann Sebastian Bach, Cello Suites Nos. 2, 4, and 6

The remarkable violoncello da spalla—literally a cello "played on the shoulder"—has been almost completely forgotten. J.S. Bach loved the instrument and wrote expressly for it—it may, in fact, be the instrument for which he wrote one or more of his cello suites. This Boston debut by Sergey Malov, the world's greatest performer on this extraordinary instrument, will change the way you hear this iconic music. A brief talk and demonstration on the violoncello da spalla will follow the performance. Not to be missed!
