CBF24 Musicians - Guy Fishman 797 px.jpg
In the early to mid 17th century, the bulkiness of the cello—the bass member of the violin family—saw it relegated almost exclusively to an accompanimental role. Technical innovations made in the 1680s led composers to reconsider the instrument. This recital explores rich and powerful music before and after the recognition of the cello’s full range of expressive and virtuosic power. Guy Fishman is principal cellist of the Handel and Haydn Society, and is a Bach Akademie Charlotte Artistic Leader.
