The world premiere of a new composition . . . at Bach Week? Yes! Acclaimed cellist Katinka Kleijn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will give the world premiere of "Ensuite," a new composition by Marcos Balter, inspired by J. S. Bach's solo Cello Suites. Kleijn, who has performed all six Bach suites over the years at Bach Week, commissioned the piece and chose Bach Week for its world premiere. Join us for this intimate, history-making concert, with the composer in attendance.

"Balter's music evolves slowly, creating vivid emotional contexts and inviting the listener to savor sounds." -- Washington Post
