Cellist Matt Haimovitz

 

continued

In the grand scheme of things, performing Bach in a club isn't all that unusual. After conducting the required cantata at services on Sunday mornings, Bach used to spend Sunday afternoons swigging coffee and gigging with friends in his favorite Leipzig cafe. And one feels that playing all six of his cello suites in a smaller room like the Ark will make an enormous difference in their impact on the audience. These works are profoundly personal meditations on love and life and death by one of the greatest composers who ever lived. Performing them in a small, darkened room before an attentive audience of 300 could be much more fitting than playing them for 4,000 folks in Hill Auditorium. Come to the Ark on Wednesday, August 28, and find out.    (end of article)
