Pieter Wispelwey plays Bach in Toulouse

June 7th Pieter Wispelwey, one of the finest baroque cellists, played Bach in Toulouse’s Festival “Passe ton Bach d’abord”.

After suites 3 and 4 I talked with him and, since he was not happy with the acoustics and the sound, I let him try one of the acacia bows. He immediatly asked if he could play the last two suites with my bow.

It was amazing to hear and see him play with so much ease with the bow.  These two very demanding suites were beautifull, with great sound and inspired.

He has taken the bow with him to Holland.
