I had the good fortune to study these suites with Dutch master cellist Anner Byslma for several years in Amsterdam. No authoritative manuscript of the Suites has survived to the present day, and the quandaries and opportunities for interpreters which arise from this fact lead to hours of spirited discussion between he and I over the years. My discovery and recognition of Bach's musical rendering of the fullness of the divinity of humanity informs my own teaching every day. Anner passed away in July of this year, and this performance is particularly meaningful to me as an avenue to share the fruits of our conversations together with the wider public.
