Matt Haimovitz: A Moveable Feast
Maverick cello pioneer brings fresh artistry
Performance Dates
Saturday, January 14, 2017 8:00pm at Crowder Hall

“In his hands, Bach’s music turns into quotidian sound, a music fully part of the now.” The New York Times

Cellist Matt Haimovitz inspires classical music lovers and new listeners by bringing his artistry to anywhere passionate music can be heard. Lending a fresh ear to familiar repertoire while initiating groundbreaking collaborations, Haimovitz offers a brilliant musical variation on the concept of a moveable feast, performing each of the "6 Suites for Solo Cello" by J.S. Bach, each with its own commissioned overture from one of today’s great composers. Three of the suites will be performed in the Crowder Hall concert while three will be performed on the previous day at a variety of locations in the community.
