One of the miraculous manifestations of Bach’s genius is in the magical way that melody, harmony and perhaps two, though sometimes three, voices co-exist in music designed to be played by an instrument that mostly only plays one note at a time. Robert Max is touring the UK playing all the suites in 2020, and we are pleased to present this exciting project at Conway Hall.

Pre-Concert Talk with Robert Hugill, 5:30pm | "In Search of Bach"
Bach's cello suites are tantalising works. We have little in the way of secure background and no autograph. We know neither when, nor for whom they were written. There is even dispute about the exact instrument for which they were written.
