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 will hear the Russian cellist Tatjana Vassiljeva, principal cellist of the world-renowned Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam. Her recital comes to us from Splendor in Amsterdam, one of the city’s coolest venues, a former bathhouse, run by artists for artists. Like Jakob Koranyi yesterday, Tatjana has turned to the Finnish Kaija Saariaho, performing her mesmerising “Spins and Spells”. She also includes music from Hungary – this time the first movement of Zoltán Kodály’s monumental sonata for solo cello.
