Johnny Gandelsman @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2022

Wednesday, 10 August 2022, 9.00pm

Grammy Award winning violinist Johnny Gandelsman returns to Kilkenny Arts Festival to perform his unique version of Bach’s Cello Suites.

Bach composed so many wonderful pieces for violin that it’s rare for violinists to tackle works written for other instruments, but Johnny Gandelsman is no ordinary violinist. Whether performing solo or as part of the innovative string quartet Brooklyn Rider, who wowed the Festival in 2015, the Grammy Award-winning violinist has a restless appetite for invention, and this year he returns to Kilkenny to perform the complete set of Bach’s cello suites.

These works, supremely challenging to play, lie at the heart of the cello repertoire, but in Gandelsman’s hands they are utterly transformed. Don’t miss this chance to experience Bach’s great cello works as you’ve never heard them before!
