Artist: J Bach S / Hampson / Schott
Format: CD

More Info:

This beautiful work combines a story by Kim Maerkl with J. S. Bachs timeless cello suites to transport the listener back in time to 1725 Italy. The story follows the life of a young girl, Adelina, who grows up in the Pieta, an orphanage and music school, and one day she is given the opportunity to perform in a Venetian Palace. Opera star Thomas Hampson narrates the story, and world renowned cellist Daniel Muller-Schott brings the Suites to life.
