Festival Finale Part I: Bach Cello Suites

As a child Villa-Lobos fell in love with the music of Bach, sitting under the piano as his Aunt Zizinha played the Preludes and Fugues of The Well-Tempered Klavier.  Villa-Lobos learned to play the cello at the age of 6, with a spike added to a viola by his father. As preparation for his Bachianas, tonight we return to Bach and listen to themaster’s Suites for solo cello.
