Bach's Complete Cello Suites by Emerald City Music

Classical, Orchestral, Chamber Music
Emerald City Music is Olympia’s home for top-flight chamber music performances. Now in its third season, the series brings over 45 classical soloists and chamber musicians to Olympia from every corner of the globe. The six cello suites of Johann Sebastian Bach are considered the Baroque composer’s most iconic set of chamber music. However, performing them in one marathon session is a bold and challenging feat for any cellist. British cellist Colin Carr returns to the Emerald City Music stages to conclude the season with this marathon full-evening performance of Bach’s complete Cello Suites.
