Fifteen years after his first, path-breaking recording and tour of Bach’s six solo cello suites, Grammy-nominated cellist Matt Haimovitz renews his lifelong exploration of these beloved works. In preparation for a new recording on baroque cello and bow, Haimovitz returns to some of his favorite intimate venues with the Bach Listening-Room Tour.
In 2000, with the recording that launched the artist’s own Oxingale Records, Haimovitz embarked on an extensive tour of North America, taking J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Solo Cello out of the concert hall and into music clubs and coffeehouses. Matt Haimovitz is considered a pioneer in bringing classical chamber music back to intimate, alternative spaces.
Haimovitz’s personal interpretations of the suites were received with great acclaim, culminating in a historic performance at New York’s infamous punk palace, CBGB, filmed by ABC News for Nightline.
