Baroque cellist André Laurent O’Neil contrasts the treatment of the scordatura tuning style across time and trends with the music of Gabrielli and Bach.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
“Gabrielli and Bach: The Scordatura Connection”
A common cello tuning C-G-d-g in late 17th-century Bologna used by Domenico Gabrielli had become an exotic tuning by the time Bach employed it, once only, in his C minor Suite. This program contrasts two approaches to the cello as a solo instrument, just 1000 km and 30 years apart.

A post-concert Q+A with the artists will be available on Zoom.
