Matt Haimovitz Plays Bach in Folk Venues
You'd think someone would have thought of this before, but Matt Haimovitz is taking his cello to the folk/acoustic halls of the U.S. to perform Bach's cello suites. Classical performers are constantly trying to make old music sound new. Haimovitz's solution removes the bourgeous bloat that often icily coats the music one hears at symphony halls. While his method may appear untraditional, one should not forget that chamber music derives its name from the intimate chambers in which the music was originally performed.
