Bach - Cello Suite no. 2 in D minor BWV 1008 - Pincombe | Netherlands Bach Society

Published on 03 Sep 2021 / In Explore

The second Cello Suite in D minor, performed by Steuart Pincombe for All of Bach, has a dark and introspective tone. It is one of the favourite pieces of Pincombe. As such, he was delighted when we asked him to record this suite in the Main Hall of the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. The searching character of the piece suits Pincombe’s outlook. In his playing, he always tries to create something new, rather than recreating past experiences.

Recorded for the project All of Bach on February 12th 2018 at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. If you want to help us complete All of Bach, please subscribe to our channel or consider donating
