    How to listen like Bach. We will examine how historically informed listening can deepen our experience of a piece in the concert hall. Excerpts by Gabrieli, Bach, and others will reveal the rich 350-year history of the cello. Equipped with this new understanding, we will hear two brand new works and start a conversation with their composers.

    This is part 1 in a series:


    Hosted by Cellist Zachary Mowitz and Composer Nick DiBerardino

    A workshop series exploring the cello's journey through time and the many ways its history can illuminate our hearing of music, past and present.

    These interactive lecture recitals feature two brand new works for solo cello by Nick DiBerardino and Ira Mowitz. Participants will discover how this new music connects to the rich legacy of the cello's past, emerging with a deeper experience of music. The series culminates in a recital on June 16.
