COLIN CARR


SIX SUITES FOR UNACCOMPANIED CELLO

 

Saturday, April 21, 2012 at 8:00 pm
and Sunday, April 22, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Recital Hall - $42

 

A rare musical experience takes place at Staller Center when Colin Carr, virtuoso cellist and artist-in-residence, performs all six Bach Cello Suites in two concerts over two days.


Pablo Casals launched the Bach Cello Suites’ popularity in the 1930s and since then, master cellists, including Rostropovich and Yo-Yo Ma, have followed with their own interpretations, taking on the music’s complexities and challenges. 

 

The Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello by Johann Sebastian Bach as played by Colin Carr will be an event classical music lovers will not want to miss. As Eric Siblin wrote in his 2009 book, The Cello Suites, “Musically, the future success of the Cello Suites hinges on their survival skills. And if the past is any indication, the odds are heavily in their favour.  Endurance and timeless relevance are woven into the very fabric of the music.”     

 

Your ticket includes a reserved seat for both concerts.


April 21: Suite No. 1 in G Major, Suite No. 3
in C Major, Suite No. 5 in C minor


April 22: Suite No. 2 in D minor, Suite No. 4
in E flat Major, Suite No. 6 in D Major
