J.S. Bach (1685–1750)
From Partita no. 2 in D minor,
On August 2nd, 2014, the brilliant cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras had to promptly cancel his solo recital at the Sommerlichen Musiktage Hitzacker in Germany. With only a few hours notice, the Festival Academy had to step in.
I chose to perform the strongest piece I know, and my favorite piece of all - Bach's Chaconne in D minor.
The microphones of the NDR were there to catch every breath of it.
