Vladimir Waltham plays Bach Solo Cello Suites

Friday 10 February, 19:30

French cellist Vladimir Waltham presents Bach's masterpieces for solo cello, in the stunning surroundings of Worcester College's Sultan Nazrin Shah Auditorium.

Equally at home on Cello, Baroque Cello, and all sizes of da Gamba instruments, Vladimir is passionate about sharing the broadest possible musical palette, in repertoire spanning from the Middle Ages to collaborations with composers and world premieres as well as everything in between.

Vladimir divides his time between his Linos Piano Trio, his work as principal cello of La Serenissima, and his freelance performing and recording activities. 2022-23 sees him returning to London’s Wigmore Hall and Helsinki’s Musiikkitalo, as well as appearing in solo and chamber recitals and as a concerto soloist in many other venues and festivals from France to Thailand, via Germany, Poland, Greece and the UK. This season will also see the release of Vladimir’s first solo album Scordatura, as well as new chamber music releases from the Linos Piano Trio and La Serenissima.

Written while he was Kapellmeister of the court at Cöthen (between 1717 and 1723), Bach's Suites for Solo Cello represent a high watermark of originality and expression in a period of unprecedented creative freedom and range . More than three hundred years after their completion, they remain loved, debated over, re-imagined and re-discovered by each new generation of performers and listeners alike.
