Going Off Script: The Ornamented Suites for Cello

Presented by Juliana Soltis
Saturday, October 12, 2019 at 8pm

The Bach you know is only the beginning.

Join Juliana at The Concert Hall at Drew University as she breaks with 200 years of tradition to revive the long-lost practice of spontaneous improvisation in J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello.

Performed entirely on historical instruments, including the rarely-heard 5-string violoncello piccolo, these are the Bach cello suites as they have not been played in centuries – and a musical experience you won’t soon forget. Be sure to stay and grab a signed copy of Juliana’s new record, releasing September 10th!

General Admission Tickets $25
