Hannah Roberts cello
BACH Suite No. 4 in E flat major BWV 1010
BEAMISH “Gala Water”
Get your Bach Cello Suite fix every day from Friday 26 to Wednesday 31 March, as each day performers play one suite and choose companion pieces to go along with it.
Today we are joined by Hannah Roberts, coming to us from the beautiful Stoller Hall at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester. For her partner piece she takes us north to Scotland: today we will hear “Gala Water” by Sally Beamish, composed in 1994 for Robert Irvine. It was commissioned by Galashiels Arts Association and uses a local folk tune, ‘Braw, Braw Lads of Gala Water’, part of which is heard at the end following a set of variations which embrace a range of emotions.
