If Cleveland ranked the status of its cellists, Mark Kosower would undoubtedly head the list, due to his position as Principal Cellist for the Cleveland Orchestra. So it makes perfect sense that the Cleveland Cello Society, whose mission is to promote the growth of cello music and its audience in Cleveland, would host a concert featuring Kosower.
That concert is part of Kosower’s “Bach for Humanity,” a multi-year project in which he’s performing Bach’s cello suites and violin sonatas and partitas (with his own transcriptions) to audiences around the region who might not normally hear him play with the Orchestra at Severance Hall.
For this concerto, which takes place at Gordon Square’s Reinberger Auditorium, he’ll be playing the Cello Suite No. 5 in C minor, Violin Sonata No. 2 in A minor, Violin Partita No. 1 in B minor and Cello Suite No. 3 in C Major.
General admission tickets are $20; students are $5.
