King Street Records has today announced the release of Baroque cellist Juliana Soltis‘ new CD: ‘Going Off Script: The Ornamented Suites for Cello‘.
The 3-disc set explores the long-lost practice of spontaneous improvisation and historical-informed ornamentation on Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello.
”Few works capture our collective imagination like the Bach Cello Suites … they’ve been de-composed, re-composed, and played on every instrument from the marimba to the trombone – but the idea of adding historical ornamentation has remained strangely (and stubbornly!) taboo …” Juliana has told The Violin Channel.
”The Suites are meant to be spontaneous, living works of art … a true partnership between composer and performer … and I hope that this album ignites a whole new conversation about Bach and his music in the 21st-century,” the thought-provoking soloist has said.
