Grammy Award-winning violinist and producer Johnny Gandelsman (New York) returns to Splendor.
For the first time in Amsterdam, Johann Sebastian Bach's complete cello suites will be performed on violin.
The Boston Globe described Gandelsman's recent performance this way: "To write clinically of Gandelsman’s phraseology, his cadenza-like approach to tempos, or even to mention that he played the Sixth Suite, remarkably, on a five-string violin, would not relay the spell this performance cast. Weight turned into weightlessness. The music re-discovered its own origins in dance. And it seemed to speak with the naturalness of a folk song. This was an exquisitely personal vision of Bach, all radical sincerity and glinting light."
