A feast of Bach this week. From the Arte Sacro Festival in Madrid this past month, two programs a week apart from each other, featuring the Cello Suites – the first set played by Polish cellist Mikolaj Konpelski, and the second set played by Spanish cellist Iagoba Fanla. Both were recorded at the Iglesia de San Antonion de los Alemanes de Madrid by the venerable Radio Nacional España on March 15 and 22 of this year. Both concerts are on separate players and run an hour each.
Here’s what’s on the players –

Like I said, a feast of Bach for cello featuring two players with distinctly different points of view – and the sound is spectacular. Further evidence there’s a lot going on all over the world and its imperative you check it out.
