Notes & Reviews:

This new release, Overtures to Bach, pairs each new work with the Prelude from the suite it introduces, with Haimovitz performing on cello and cello piccolo. Philip Glass simply and eloquently prepares the audience for the first Sutie with his Overture, encouraging an open and calm frame of mind. Overtures to Bach spans more than time, linking us to far-flung corners of our musical world and offering an entree into six distinct compositional voices. Then as Philip Glass writes, "Just let Bach's music begin. It's there for the listening."
