Episode 1 of Eleonor Bindman’s new series “Conversations Around The Piano” features cellist Dale Henderson, founder of Bach in the Subways. Eleonor and Dale talk about his global initiative, discuss J.S. Bach’s Cello Suites and compare the piano and cello sounds in a “duet” of the Sarabande from Cello Suite No. 5.
If you didn’t know the cello originals, you’d happily accept these as keyboard suites. … spectacular in Bindman’s hands… Fascinating, and fun; Bindman’s scholarly but readable notes seal the deal, and the recording is excellent.
