- This is "My Big Bach Blog" because I will be exploring, one at a time and in order, each of the thirty-six movements of the 6 Suites for Solo Violoncello by Johann Sebastian Bach. The world doesn't need this…but I do. I'm a professional cellist who has played the Suites many, many times, but I expect to experience this iconic music in a new way by going through it systematically and with a fresh perspective. I get a lot of pleasure and inspiration from house concerts -- informal performances in intimate settings for interested -- and interesting! -- people, so that's the spirit in which I'm going to approach each installment. I welcome questions and comments!
