Notes & Reviews:

Bach's Cello Suites, for most cellists, represent a lifetime's work and thought. Over the years, certain images have come to mind, so Angela East decided to reflect these in the booklet. The idea of combining music with images has existed since the time of Aristotle, when he wrote 'De Sensu', which is about combining the two areas of perception. Newton divided the color spectrum over seven parts of the scale and various people have devised "color organs" that project light during performances of particular works, such as Scriabin's 'Promethee: le poeme du feu'. Angela East's visual concept is based on texture and dimension as well as the keys, and she relates these keys to certain colors - for example, the yellow of E flat major in the desert picture and the black of C minor in the background of the spider's web. It is her hope that these images will enhance the listener's enjoyment of the music and give insight into her interpretation of these suites.
