Join Juliana at The Concert Hall at Drew University as she breaks with 200 years of tradition to revive the long-lost practice of spontaneous improvisation in J.S. Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello.

Performed entirely on historical instruments, including the rarely-heard 5-string violoncello piccolo, these are the Bach cello suites as they have not been played in centuries—and a musical experience you won’t soon forget. Be sure to stay and grab a signed copy of Juliana’s new record, released September 10th!

There are few works in all of music which command the awe and affection of Schubert’s Cello Quintet. Written at a feverish pace as the 31-year-old composer neared death, the quintet’s mesmerizing transcendence has made it an essential listening ritual for music lovers. Inspired by Schubert’s immortal creation, Bruce Adolphe offers a deeply-felt cello quintet, preceded by the first of six landmark string quintets by Mozart.
