Jean-Guihen Queyras: Bach Cello Suites - Suite 2, Courante: À bout de souffle
Jean-Guihen Queyras takes us on a journey into the secrets of one of the most famous works for cello solo. His guest in this episode is French actor Lambert Wilson.
Suite 2, Courante: À bout de souffle
How did Bach come to conceive the unimaginable: composing an two-and-a-half hour “opera” for a single 4-stringed instrument?
Why did he use dances throughout the Suites? Are these dances meant to be danced? How does one choose a bowing? How free can the interpreter be?
These are only a few of the many questions on which Jean-Guihen will give us his insight as a passionate performer of this Masterwork.
Jean-Guihen will be delighted to answer your questions, which can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
