Chicago Symphony Orchestra cellist Katinka Kleijn will give the world premiere of Marcos Balter’s “Ensuite,” a new multi-movement work based on J.S. Bach’s Cello Suites. Kleijn, whom the New York Times calls “a player of formidable expressive gifts,” commissioned the piece for her Bach Week Candlelight Concert. The work will include movements from various Bach Cello Suites and new movements composed by Balter in response to Bach’s music. This is the Bach Week Festival's first world premiere.
