2665 - J.S. Bach: The Suites for Solo Cello, Keyboard, and Orchestra
We will listen to, read about, and deepen our understanding of Bach's six suites for solo cello. What is it about this music that has made it so popular for so long? How does it convey such deep emotions? What are the origins of the different dance forms in the suites (Allemande, Courante, Gavotte, etc.)? How has performing style changed since Pablo Casals recorder the works in the 1930? Our text by Eric Siblin will offer a guide into the suites from a highly personal point of view. I will be playing movements from the suites in every class and will invite colleagues in to perform them, as well. We will focus on the cello suites, but also take into account Bach's suites for other instruments. Lecture (plus Questions); Facilitated Discussion; Listening to Music or Other Audio
