J.S. Bach: Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major
Liz Johnson: Reflections of an Eccentric English Artist
This 50 minute recital includes the North American premiere of Liz Johnson’s Cello Suite:Reflections of an Eccentric English Artist. It is based on the life and work of artist Ben Hartley, and is woven together with Hildegard’s exquisite medieval plainchant hymn Ave generosa. Heather’s premiere recording of the Suite appears on Liz Johnson’s Intricate Web (Divine Art, 2016). The Suite has been described as “… breathtaking” (Divine Art) and “…stunning … The music explores a vast canvas of melody, harmonics and other string effects…To me, this suite is Johnson’s masterpiece. It is not too much to say that it takes its place beside Bach, Britten and Ligeti”
