A Maisky Ritual
Listening to the Bach Cello Suites is one of those rituals we music lovers need to perform on a regular basis. That’s why we’ve invited Mischa Maisky back to round off the cycle he began with us two seasons ago.
In this second and final recital, he will perform Suites Nos. 2, 3 and 6, the last of which contains the wonderful Gigue movement that brings this landmark set of works to a close.
