Article Pixel

On September 23rd, cellist Matt Haimovitz will give an intimate candlelight performance in the underground crypt beneath The Church of the Intercession in Harlem, part of Unison Media's acclaimed Crypt Sessions concert series (as featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New Yorker, NPR,WQXR, The Christian Science Monitor, Agence France-Presse, and more). The concert will feature selections from Bach's cello suites, as well as newly commissioned works by Philip Glass, Du Yun, Vijay Iyer, Roberto Sierra, and LUna Pearl Woolf all of which act as overtures to Bach's cello oeuvre. There will be a wine and cheese reception at 7PM before the concert at 8PM.

The unique programming of the evening is reflected in his recently released albumentitled Overtures to Bach, which includes six new commissions that anticipate and relate to each of the accompanying cello suites. The album was released this month on PENTATONE Oxingale Series and includes Haimovitz's new interpretation of the Bach Suites, inspired and informed by an authoritative manuscript from Bach's second wife and performed on period instruments.

The concert is a part of Unison Media's Crypt Sessions, a concert series in partnership with Intercession and sponsored by Yamaha, which most recently featured twin sister piano duo Christina & Michelle Naughton performing Messiaen'sVisions of the Amen.

Tickets are $35 (including wine & cheese), with all proceeds going to the church.
