BACH AT HIS PEAK

While leading a dazzling career, the German cellist Alban Gerhardt stands out not only for being one of the most gifted musicians of his generation, but also due to his artistic initiatives in the social field, including the organization of concerts in schools, hospitals, and prisons. He is one of the cofounders of “Musicians4UnitedEurope,” a group of international musicians who work to support a united and democratic Europe. A regular guest at the Théâtre de la Ville, he will delight us all with this concert featuring his version of Johann Sebastian Bach’s Six Suites, a baroque masterpiece he recently recorded for Hyperion Records.
