Baroque cellist Lynden Cranham plays Bach’s cello suites at Fishbourne

Baroque cellist Lynden Cranham will celebrate the release of Volume 2 of her recordings of Bach’s Cello Suites with a concert in St Peter and St Mary Church, Fishbourne, beginning at 3pm, on Sunday, June 18.

She will be playing from the Suites, and musicologist, writer and broadcaster Roger Parker will discuss the composer and the music. Lynden’s selection of movements from the Suites includes two from the sixth Suite, and for these she will be laying aside her four-string cello and using one with five strings, an instrument which was made for her by renowned luthier Shem Mackey. The five-string cello has a top string added, and this gives the instrument an almost ethereal sound, Lynden said.

She added she was delighted to be giving the concert in St Peter and St Mary, a beautiful little church whose acoustic is perfect for baroque instruments, and where she made the recordings.
