Bach's Cello Suite No. 3

Master Class with Jordi Savall (III/VI) Bach's Cello Suite No. 3


Jordi Savall–renowned gambist, conductor, composer, musical researcher and leader in the field of early music–collaborates with conductor Michael Tilson Thomas in a series of six master classes featuring alumni of the New World Symphony (NWS). He works with the young string players on solo pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach, exploring with them the significance of style, technique, musicianship and historical context in the performance of baroque music.

Bach's Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major (BWV 1009) is one of a set of six suites for unaccompanied cello. NWS alumnus Carl Baron performs the Allemande from the Suite and then works with Jordi Savall on baroque articulation and accentuation and discussing the significance of relaxation of the bow arm wrist.
