Haddo Arts Festival: Angela East
Angela East of Red Priest performs two cello suites by Bach.
Haddo Arts Festival comes to Aberdeen for a lunchtime recital in the honeyed acoustics of the medieval church of St Machar. We hear two of Bach's suites for unaccompanied cello - masterworks in which the composer creates great emotional intensity within the framework of the baroque dance suite.
Angela East of Red Priest is widely respected as one of the most accomplished performers in the period music world. She performs with many of Europe's leading baroque orchestras as well as her own ensemble.
Bach Cello Suite No 1 in G major, BWV 1007
Bach Cello Suite No 2 in C major, BWV 1009
