Kim Kashkashian talks with classical radio about the Bach cello suites, played on the viola

ECM has just released a new recording of Bach's six cello suites, played on the viola by one of the instrument's greatest exponents, Kim Kashkashian. The suites were once described by Pablo Casals as "the very essence of Bach…a whole radiance of space and poetry pours forth from them."  These qualities are in abundance in the present version, recorded at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York in November and December 2016, and February 2017.

In conjunction with this new release KK has made some time avail. to speak with classical radio today November 1, 2018. Watch for our tweets throughout the day.
