OVERTURES TO BACH – MATT HAIMOVITZ, CELLO
Tuesday August 1, 2017 | 6:00PM, 9:00PM
Christ Church Cathedral
Matt Haimovitz’s continuously-evolving and intense engagement with the Bach Cello Suites reaches a new zenith with Overtures to Bach, new commissions that anticipate, reflect and transform each of the Cello Suites. The new overtures expand upon the multitude of spiritual, cross cultural, and vernacular references found in the Bach, building a bridge from the master’s time to our own. The solo cello recital has been a Haimovitz trademark since the year 2000, when he made waves with his Bach “Listening-Room” Tour, in unconventional venues throughout the US. He brings a fresh ear to familiar repertoire, champions new music and initiates ground-breaking collaborations, and creates innovative recording projects. Through his visionary approach, Haimovitz is redefining what it means to be an artist in the 21st century.
