Adrian Bradbury - Cello recital live from Clare Hall

Sat 10 April

YouTube

Bradbury explores music from the opposite ends of Bach's treasure-trove of music for solo cello - a genre that he virtually invented. The sixth and final Suite presents some of Bach's most ebullient, invigorating, infectious music. It was composed for a cello with an extra string (though Adrian plays it tonight on the normal 4-string instrument, a technical feat in itself). Its six movements are interleaved tonight with two short Bach-inspired 'Songs' by Philip Glass, reflecting a thoughtful and little-heard side of that composer. Pianissimo is a beautiful and enchanting work by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks which provides a perfect interlude before Adrian ends with Bach's familiar and much loved First Suite, music to heal the heart.
