Music@Menlo Carte Blanche Concert V: Cello Evolutions II: Laurence Lesser, cello
Distinguished cellist Laurence Lesser completes this summer’s cycle of Bach’s Cello Suites in a provocative program. The concert pairs the iconic First Suite with German composer Paul Hindemith’s Sonata for Solo Cello, an essay in bold modernism and instrumental fluency. Bach’s glorious Fourth Suite serves as the program’s centerpiece. The final set bookends Italian master Luigi Dallapiccola’s Ciaccona, Intermezzo, and Adagio with the severe Second Suite and the thrilling Sixth Suite.
