Haimovitz Explores Bach’s Beloved Works at Minsky Recital Hall
Renowned cellist Matt Haimovitz brings his Bach Listening Room tour to the University of Maine Minsky Recital Hall at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 26.
Haimovitz has renewed his acclaimed 2000 exploration of Bach’s cello suites with a new recording, video and critical study of Bach’s manuscripts. The Sunday program will include “Suite III in C Major” by Johann Sebastian Bach, “Solo Sonata” by Eugène Ysaÿe, “Orbit” by Philip Glass (Maine premiere) and “Suite VI in D Major” by Johann Sebastian Bach (on cello piccolo).
Haimovitz, who plays a Venetian cello made in 1710, has received the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers’ Concert Music Award for his advocacy of living composers and pioneering spirit as well as the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award for his far-reaching contributions to American music.
“We are thrilled to present our audience with the exquisite talent of Matt Haimovitz,” says Daniel Williams, executive director of the Collins Center for the Arts (CCA). “Our Chamber Music Series draws world-class musicians to our stage and Matt will help us carry on that great tradition.”
Tickets to the concert, which is part of the CCA Chamber Music Series, are $32. For more information and tickets, call 207.581.1755 or visit the CCA website.
