J.S. Bach: Solo Cello Suites
Hai-ye Ni, cello
The six suites for solo cello by J. S. Bach are among the most iconic works of music ever composed. Spiritual, emotional, and intellectual, they have been performed by the world's greatest cellists at occasions like the fall of the Berlin Wall and at memorial services for the victims of 9/11.

CHAUSSON: Concerto in D major for Violin, Piano and String Quartet, Op. 21
A dream team of noted musicians comes together to perform Chausson’s rarely heard concerto, a rich, warm-sounding, melodic example of late French Romanticism. Chausson called the two main instruments "projections against the quartet background." We call it a neglected masterpiece and posterity vigorously agrees.
