Musical Opinion

Pre-concert talk with Robert Hugill at 5.30pm:

In search of Bach's cello suites

Bach’s six suites for solo cello are some of the most frequently performed and recognisable solo compositions ever written for cello, yet there is so much we don't know about them. Robert Hugill goes on an exploration to find out more about the background, and what we actually know about when, for whom and where they were written.
