Bachiana

August 17, 2016 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

£8 – £10

The acclaimed cellist, Anne-Isabel Meyer, returns with Bach expert,
Peter Lea-Cox, to play Schumann’s accompanied versions of the six Bach
Cello Suites in three performances. Robert Schumann was determined to
make the Cello Suites known to a wider audience. In 1853 he embarked
on a project entitled Bachiana, adding piano accompaniments to these
unaccompanied pieces. Although his arrangements were initially rejected
for publication, several editions appeared over the next decades, and this
performance is the first UK hearing of the entire collection.
