Final Britten Centenary performances for Pieter
Although the end of the centenary year is coming to a close, Pieter Wispelwey
remains firmly focussed on Britten's music as he prepares for a performance of the 3 Suites for Solo Cello at London's Wigmore Hall
on 9th December. Pieter has recorded the Suites several times, regularly featuring them in recital programmes and he views them with as equal importance and fascination as the six suites by J S Bach.
Last week, Pieter treated Dublin audiences to a intense and electrifying account of Britten's Cello Symphony with the RTE Symphony Orchestra, and followed this with a late night performance of the 3rd Cello Suite; described by one reviewer as 'riveting beyond belief'. The Wigmore recital offers the chance to hear Pieter's current thoughts and interpretation of all three of these intriguing works.
