PAOLO PANDOLFO


THE SIX SUITES

‘If we cannot create a bridge between the past and the present, we have no future.’

– Paolo Pandolfo

The Six Unaccompanied Cello Suites of Johann Sebastian Bach are monuments of human achievement, portals to another realm. Here, time is non-linear: resonances from the past echo amid intimations of the future.

Italian viola da gambist Paolo Pandolfo mesmerised audiences in the 2019 Adelaide Festival, bringing vitality and improvisatory freedom to everything he touched. Described as the ‘Paganini of the viola da gamba’ (Basler Zeitung) and ‘one of the most brilliant and poetic of the instrument’s current exponents’ (Grammophone), Paolo simultaneously inhabits the roles of improviser, interpreter, and composer.


Full Package includes two concerts (12.00pm and 2.30pm) and a light lunch.

Two Concert Pass includes two concerts (12.00pm and 2.30pm).
