Cellist Inbal Segev will perform J.S. Bach’s Cello Suites in two concerts at Bargemusic, the iconic classical music venue housed on a converted coffee barge. The first concert on September 25 features Suites Nos. 1, 3 & 5 and Segev will perform Suites 2, 4, and 6 on October 30. The concerts follow the US release of Segev’s recording of the Cello Suites on September 18 on Vox Classics. Segev recorded J.S. Bach’s monumental Cello Suites over a period of six months, working with Grammy-winning producer Da-Hong Seetoo.
Inbal Segev’s playing has been described as “characterized by a strong and warm tone . . . delivered with impressive fluency and style,” by The Strad and “first class,” “richly inspired,” and “very moving indeed,” by Gramophone. Equally committed to new repertoire and masterworks, Segev brings interpretations that are both unreservedly natural and insightful to the vast range of music she performs.
In addition, Nick Davis Productions produced an accompanying documentary film of Segev’s journey recording the work, following her through the process – from readying her cello at an upstate New York luthier, through an emotional and exhausting period of study and rehearsal, and finally into the recording studio. The trailer for the documentary can be viewed at http://bit.ly/SegevBachTrailer.
