Programme Note

Recomposed by Peter Gregson: Bach — The Cello Suites was released as a double-album on October 19, 2018 by Deutsche Grammophon as part of their ‘Recomposed’ series. The recording was performed by Peter Gregson (solo cello, synthesizers) and cellists Ben Chappell, Reinoud Ford, Richard Harwood, Katherine Jenkinson and Tim Lowe in AIR Studios in London, UK.

“Rather than thinking about Bach’s compositions as a two-dimensional painting, I thought about them as sculpture. So, although the object is the same, if you turn it around and see it from a different angle – shine the light on it in a different way – you get different textures; new shadows, new shapes appear; new pathways through the melodies and harmonies. The result is more like a suite of fantasias on a theme (of the original compositions), but still recognisably the same material... at least I hope so!” Peter Gregson
