Bach. Pure, cathartic, reflective, fantasy and adventure. The solo cello suites.
The beauty and perpetual sense of discovery that these solo cello suites bring with every performance have never ceased to capture the imagination of performers and listener throughout the three hundred years since they were composed. They are a source of limitless imagination, comfort, spirituality and simple beauty that speak to both the most innocent ears of a young child and the most experienced, seasoned musician. However many times they are performed and heard the suites never cease to surprise with the freshness and fantasy of their creation.
