BBC Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert: Alban Gerhardt

NB Change of Artist and Programme

Thu 9 May 2013 1pm - Jerwood Hall, LSO St Luke's, London


Alban Gerhardt

Alban Gerhardt

BRITTEN Suite No 1 for solo cello, Op 72
BACH Suite No 6 in D major for solo cello BWV1012

Alban Gerhardt cello

Bach’s cello suites demonstrate the level of sheer invention that their creator brought to his instrumental music, encompassing a vast spectrum of colours and moods. In this concert they are placed alongside cello suites by Benjamin Britten; unlike Bach’s, Britten’s movements are not drawn from the traditional French Suite, and feature everything from fugues and marches to folksong.

Change of artist
Daniel Müller-Schott has had to withdraw from today’s Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert due to injury. We are most grateful to cellist Alban Gerhardt for agreeing to appear at short notice. The programme is very slightly revised from that originally published.

Tickets: £10 (£9 concessions)
