Downstair Cabaret Theatre Will Present FRON TRAGEDY TO TRANSCENDENCE
by BWW News Desk - Jul 9, 2016

Downstairs Cabaret Theatre is pleased to announce 2 performances only of From Tragedy to Transcendence: Bach, Casals, and the Six Suites for Cello Solo, featuring Steven Hancoff. On the very day that Pablo Casals' father bought the 13-year old child his first cello, Casals came upon a dusty manuscript of Bach's Cello Suites in an obscure second-hand bookstore near the Barcelona docks. No one had ever actually played the Cello Suites from the time Bach composed them in 1720. Casals practiced them daily for 12 years before he had the courage to present one in public. Now world-renowned jazz guitarist Steven Hancoff brings Bach, Casals and the Six Suites for Cello Solo back to glorious life through his remarkable acoustic guitar transcriptions in this telling of the Life of Sebastian Bach, his Legacy, and the Life of Pablo Casals. Performances are Saturday, July 16 at 8:00pm and Sunday, July 17 at 2:00pm at Downstairs Cabaret at Winton Place, 3450 Winton Place, Brighton-Henrietta (convenient free parking and handicapped accessible).
