Opening Nights Matt Haimovitz, Cellist
March 31, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$25 – $50
The Bach Suites: A Moveable Feast
Acclaimed cellist Matt Haimovitz now offers a brilliant musical variation on the concept of A Moveable Feast. In advance of releasing the complete set of Bach Suites for Unaccompanied Cello, he’ll offer a unique experience—unparalleled in the classical music world. Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello (1717-1723) are some of the most moving and spiritual compositions for a solo instrument in history.
Renowned as a musical pioneer, cellist Matt Haimovitz is praised by The New York Times as a “ferociously talented cellist who brings his megawatt sound and uncommon expressive gifts to a vast variety of styles” and by The New Yorker as “remarkable virtuoso” who “never turns in a predictable performance.”
Haimovitz made his debut in 1984, at the age of 13, as soloist with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic. At 17 he made his first recording with James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, for Deutsche Grammophon.
He has received numerous honors including being the first cellist ever to receive the prestigious Premio Internazionale “Accademia Musicale Chigiana (1999).
