Daily Bach

Daily Bach:

A lockdown project for 2020

During the UK’s Coronavirus lockdown, I have set myself the challenge of recording one piece of unaccompanied Bach per day on the cello, in no particular order.

I hope you enjoy these live ‘warts and all’ performances, which were recorded at home, and in one continuous take.

Day 27 – Wednesday 22 April

Courante from Suite Nº 2 in D minor

Day 26 – Tuesday 21 April

Gigue from Suite Nº 4 in E♭ major

Monday 20 April (Break from Bach)

Well, after 25 days of nothing but Bach, I thought it was time for a break – here is Saint-Saëns’ famous Le Cygne from the Carnival of the Animals. This is a multitrack recording; both cello and piano are played by me.
