A new instrument, new sonorities, and new insights motivated Pieter Wispelwey to make this new interpretation of Bach’s cello suites. An introductory film (25’), shot in the unique historical ambiance of Wadham and Magdalen college Oxford, features Wispelwey in musical and scholarly interaction with acclaimed Bach researchers Laurence Dreyfus and John Butt. It bears testimony to the depth of this music that so much remains to be (re)discovered in it, even for a virtuoso who has played it close to a thousand times on stage.
Pieter Wispelwey gives a masterclass cello on Wednesday October 17. The masterclass is free for students and alumni of KASK & Conservatory. Other participants pay 60 euro. Register in advance with Sara Smalbrugge. You are free to come and watch.
