“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.
