OUT NOW | Cellist Alban Gerhardt's New CD: 'Bach: The Cello Suites' [LISTEN]

Hyperion Records has announced the release of German cellist Alban Gerhardt's new album: 'Bach: The Cello Suites'

Hyperion Records has this month announced the release of German cellist Alban Gerhardt's new album: Bach: The Cello Suites.

The disc features the 6 cornerstone Cello Suites for Solo Cello by Johann Sebastian Bach.

''Every cellist is dreaming of one day being able to have something meaningful to say with the Bach Cello Suites ... our so-called bible ..." Alban has told The Violin Channel.

"When I was asked several years ago if I would be interested in recording them I knew immediately that I was not ready - and insisted not before I had turned 50 ..." the now 50-year-old cello virtuoso has said.

"My only hope is that the listeners won’t feel reminded of all the other recordings out there ... that they will find something different and new in my interpretation."
