Chamber Music Sundays at Three Presents ‘Bach Cello Suites, Part II’


2013 Chamber Music InstituteCAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo., March 16, 2012 – Chamber Music Sundays at Three will present “Bach Cello Suites, Part II” at 3 p.m. April 1 in the Robert F. and Gertrude L. Shuck Music Recital Hall at Southeast Missouri State University’s River Campus.

Ken Kulosa, one of our area’s most engaging early music specialists, returns to complete Bach’s cycle of suites on baroque cello. Kulosa has performed with the Chicago Symphony and the Chicago Chamber musicians and is now in his 14th year of playing with the St. Louis Symphony. He is very active as a baroque cellist, playing with the Kingsbury Ensemble, Bach at the Sem and Early Music St. Louis. Kulosa is in great demand as a teacher and was named Artist/Teacher of the Year 2003 by the Missouri chapter of the American String Association.

The “Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello” by Johann Sebastian Bach will be performed by Kulosa and are some of the most performed and recognizable solo compositions ever written for cello. The suites contain a great variety of technical devices, a wide emotional range and some of Bach’s most compelling voice interactions and conversations. It is their intimacy, however, that has made the suites amongst Bach’s most popular works today, resulting in their different recorded interpretations being fiercely defended by their respective advocates.
