Adrian Bradbury - live cello recital, Clare Hall, University of Cambridge


Join Clare Hall, University of Cambridge, this Saturday at 8pm for a free virtual cello concert, via YouTube.

Cellist Adrian Bradbury explores music from the opposite ends of Bach's treasure-trove of music for solo cello - a genre that he virtually invented. The sixth and final Suite presents some of Bach's most ebullient, invigorating, infectious music. It was composed for a cello with an extra string (though Adrian plays it on the normal 4-string instrument, a technical feat in itself). Its six movements are interleaved with two short Bach-inspired 'Songs' by Philip Glass, reflecting a thoughtful and little-heard side of that composer. Pianissimo is a beautiful and enchanting work by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks which provides a perfect interlude before Adrian ends with Bach's familiar and much loved First Suite, music to heal the heart.
