Steven Isserlis, cello & Richard Egarr, harpsichord

A long-time house favorite and a 92Y debut.

Cellist Steven Isserlis partners with harpsichordist Richard Egarr in a concert that follows their highly acclaimed recording including several of these selections of works originally written for other instruments. Gramophone wrote, “(these are) full-blooded but sensitive readings which, far from being contrary to Bach’s spirit, seem rather to magnify it.” The program features Bach’s splendid sonatas for viola da gamba, a charming and buoyant sonata by Boccherini, a Handel masterwork and more. A Baroque music lover’s delight.
