Mari didn't get a birthday party, so we're throwing a virtual house concert instead! Friends and strangers alike should come join us from far and wide over the magic of Zoom and Youtube for an evening of baroque and 20th century cello music.

Philip Sheegog has stitched together what he calls "Frankenstein's Bach Cello Suite": one movement from each of Bach's six cello suites interspersed with gems of the 20th century cello repertoire. Plus we'll say hello and chat and get to see people in little boxes on our screens.


— Frankenstein’s Bach Cello Suite —

Too much time in the quarantine laboratory gave rise to this musical madness! A “new” Bach cello suite….created from chopped up bits of all six Bach cello suites! Stitched in between each glorious movement of Bach are gems of the 20th-century cello repertoire — full of passion, pain, curiosity, and serenity — pulling together music both new and old into a new, hybridized creation.


….Suite No. 1 in G Major - I. Prelude

 ...Serenade for Cello - II. Poco allegretto

….Suite No. 2 in D minor- II. Allemande

 ...Sonata for Solo Cello - I. Dialogo

….Suite No. 3 in C Major - III. Courante

...Syrinx (arr. Orfeo Mandozzi)

….Suite No. 4 in E-flat Major - IV. Sarabande

...Sonata for Solo Cello - III. Toccata

….Suite No. 5 in C minor - V. Gavotte I and II

 ...Appalachia Waltz

….Suite No. 6 in D Major - VI. Gigue

(and maybe another fun tune to close us out...!)

Hi everyone! Just wanted to say another huge THANK YOU for coming out last night, it was such a joy to share that music with you and to have such meaningful conversation afterwards. Wishing you all health and safety in this difficult time!

Feel free to reach out to me about anything you'd like at [email protected], and if you want to check out my duo that Bexx accidentally plugged, you can see our debut music video at! Hope to see you again at my next program in late June!
