Overtures to Bach. Matt Haimovitz interviews with WCVE Radio

Bookmark and Share

Cellist Matt Haimovitz's continuously-evolving and intense engagment with the Bach Cello Suites reaches a new zenith with Overtures to Bach, six new commissions that anticipate and reflect each of the cello suites. The new overtures expand upon the multitude of spiritual, cross-cultural, and vernacular references found in the Bach, building a bridge from the master's time to our own.

88.9 WCVE: Richmond VA - Classical Music Host, Mike Goldberg recently had the chance to speak with Matt about the new release and how he strives to bring new listeners to classical music by bringing it to non-traditional venues. Listen in as he explains this project that travels over time, taking us on a journey to explore ties between the music of Bach and today's composers.
