About this Event

The Bach you know is only the beginning.

Beloved for generations, the music of Johann Sebastian Bach has inspired millions – but what if the music we know and love was incomplete?

Join cellist Juliana Soltis as she breaks with 200 years of tradition to revive the long-lost practice of spontaneous improvisation in J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello. Performed entirely on historical instruments, including a rarely-heard 5-string violoncello piccolo, these are the Bach cello suites as they have not been played in centuries – and a musical experience you won’t soon forget.
