~Cellissimo~ Richard Wigmore – Insights on Bach Cello Suites

Friday, 26 March 2021, 12.15pm

Music for Galway & Galway 2020 present

Richard Wigmore
A regular contributor to Music for Galway’s Midwinter Festival, we are delighted to welcome musicologist Richard Wigmore to CELLISSIMO to introduce what is seen as “The Bible” for cellists all over the world – the six solo suites by J.S. Bach.
Richard will set them in historical context, describe their overall structures and point out some highlights to look forward to over the next six days.

Our Bach Plus Series, running over six consecutive days from Friday to Wednesday, presents all six suites chronologically, with our six different cellists in different parts of Europe selecting partner works to give us a beautiful 45-minute lunchtime programme.
(Free event)

True to its original vision, CELLISSIMO celebrates the cello, one of the world’s most beloved and versatile instruments; Music for Galway has re-imagined the festival in order to deliver breathtaking music and the sensations of the West of Ireland to people’s homes.
