Three top cellists will be playing Bach concertos on three variants of the Baroque cello – both solo and ensemble. Huh? Hang on a sec! Cello concertos by Bach? Although he composed six suites, Bach never actually composed a concerto for solo cello. Nonetheless, there are any number of his concertos that are ideally suited for one or more cellos, with or without some degree of arrangement.

The Netherlands Bach Society will be performing cello rearrangements of Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins, Concerto for Violin and Oboe, and his transcription of Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins. After all, wouldn’t Bach have done the same if he’d known such amazing soloists would be performing at our biennale?
