Matt Haimovitz, cello; Jean Marchand, piano
Sunday, June 05, 2011
Great classical artists have always been pioneers. This week on Saint Paul Sunday we welcome Matt Haimovitz, a brilliant young performer who combines an acclaimed concert career with intrepid forays into the unlikeliest places for a classical cellist -- jazz clubs and punk bars, just to name a few. This week he steps out solo for music of Bach and Osvaldo Golijov, then joins forces with pianist Jean Marchand for Dmitri Shostakovich's remarkable Cello Sonata in d minor. And no matter where you happen to hear Matt's program this week, you'll be captivated.
Johann Sebastian Bach: Unaccompanied Cello Suite No. 3, BWV 1009 in C major
Osvaldo Golijov: Omaramor (solo cello)
Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Sonata in D minor, Op. 40
