A weekend to immerse yourself in the deep, warm sound of the cello in all its forms, all the way from Bach to the most contemporary.
A three-part journey with Norwegian cello master Truls Mørk: Beethoven, the composer who brought virtuosity to the cello; Prokofiev and his op 119, a piece that sealed the relationship between the composer and Mstislav Rostropovich, the greatest cellist of the modern era. Finally, César Franck’s sonata in A major in its transcription for cello, a masterpiece of the French chamber music repertoire.
