Event Description

Matt Haimovitz, Cello

Join us in a new and unique concert-going experience – unparalleled in the classical music world. Acclaimed cellist Matt Haimovitz offers a brilliant musical variation on the concept of A Moveable Feast. Bach’s Suites for Unaccompanied Cello are some of the most moving and spiritual compositions for a solo instrument. This concert, however, travels from one end of Rt. 9 to the other. On Sunday, he’ll begin the feast by performing three Bach suites in three separate locations around Hampshire County. Each suite will be accompanied by overtures, recently commissioned by Haimovitz. The feast culminates on Monday in Bowker Auditorium with a concert of the balance of the suites including overtures by Vijay Iyer, Mohammed Fairouz & Luna Pearl Woolf.
