In search of Bach's Cello Suites

On Sunday 30 January 2022, Robert Max is performing all of Bach's Cello Suites at Conway Hall as part of the Sunday Concerts series. Max enjoys a varied career as a solo cellist, conductor (of the Oxford Symphony Orchestra), chamber musician (as a member of the Barbican Piano Trio) and orchestral cellist (as principal cello of the London Chamber Orchestra), and he has taught at the Royal Academy of Music's Junior Academy since 1992. He is touring the UK playing the complete Suites, and this will be a wonderful chance to experience a lifetime's distillation of these seminal works.

Before the concert, I will be giving a talk entitled, In search of Bach's Cello Suites, filling in the background to the works and looking at what we do and don't know about them.

Full details from the Conway Hall website.
