The celebrated cellist unveils another selection from her new recording of Bach's Cello Suites, which she describes as '[m]asterpieces by perhaps the greatest composer who ever lived.'

EXCLUSIVE: Video Premiere: Inbal Segev – ‘Allemande’ from Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major from ‘Bach: Cello Suites’

Inbal Segev Bach Cello SuitesVox Classics will release cellist Inbal Segev‘s new recording of Bach’s Cello Suites on September 18 in the U.S., November 6 worldwide.

Last week we premiered the cellist’s video for the “Prelude” from Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major. Today we present an exclusive first look at the video for the “Allemande.”

Gramophone has described Segev’s playing as “first class,” “richly inspired,” and “very moving indeed.” Her work is newly on display as well on In Truth, an Albany Records album of music by contemporary composer Lucas Richman, recorded live with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and including Segev as soloist on Richman’s “Three Pieces for Cello and Orchestra,” a work she premiered as a set in 2013.

Produced by Grammy winner Da-Hong Seetoo, Bach: Cello Suites is “the culmination of years of studying the suites…the challenge for me was to find a way to incorporate the ideas I learned from Baroque practice while being true to my musical language, which is rooted in this century.

“I wanted to create an interpretation of this great masterwork for the contemporary listener – to say, ‘Here is what Bach has to say to people in the 21st century.'”
