Talk I: JS Bach and his suites for solo cello

October 5, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A talk by Mike Worboys

This is part of the Berwick Music Series 2023; you can find the full programme and buy a Series Pass by clicking here.

Mike Worboys’ popular talks continue with a discussion of JS Bach’s Suites for solo cello. The talk will review Bach’s residency at the court of Prince Leopold at Köthen (1716-1723), where much of his secular music, probably including the great cello suites, was composed.

Mike will focus on the second suite, as this will be performed in viola transcription in one of the concerts. Mike holds a PhD in Music from the University of Durham.
