Cellist Zuill Bailey is in town to perform Bach and Haydn on Saturday, January 7. At Strathmore, he’ll join the National Philharmonic for Haydn’s Cello Concerto No. 1 (in a concert that also includes Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony and Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge). At 3:30 that same afternoon, also at the Music Center at Strathmore, he will play the complete solo cello music by J.S. Bach. Hear him tell Marilyn Cooley about the meaning of this music for him, and for the world, as well as the challenge of such a demanding program. And we’ll hear a bit about his new recordings.
