Festival Bachcelona: Beyond the Suite I

  • Clara Pouvreau

The Museu de la Música hosts two concerts of the Bachcelona Festival which, under the common title ‘Beyond the Suite’, will feature the participation of acclaimed cellists Clara Pouvreau and Markku Luolajan-Mikkola. While Pouvreau will test her virtuosity with the interpretation of Sonata n. 1 in G minor BWV 1001, transcribed from the violin, Luolajan-Mikkola will embark on a similar, equally complex adventure with Suite no. 2 in D minor BWV 1008 and Partita n. 2 in G minor BWV 1004.

Clara Pouvreau is an acclaimed cellist who is well known to the Bachcelona audience. This time she will face the challenge of interpreting a Bach suite, followed by a piece transcribed from the violin, with all the complexity that this entails. We will thus be enjoying a rare opportunity of listening to the polyphonic density of a fugue with the sonority of the cello. On the next day, Markku Luolajan-Mikkola, for his part, will also take up the challenge of advancing “beyond the suite”.
