The perfect program for the “Instrument of the Year 2018”

The Landesmusikräte Baden-Württemberg, Berlin, Brandenburg, Bremen, Hessen, Thuringia, Saarland, Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein have named the cello “Instrument of the Year” in 2018! The violoncello once again focuses on a string instrument, which is characterized by its versatile, warm sound
and its boundless possibilities since the 16th century in numerous compositions are always savored.

At the Thüringer Bach Festival there is the perfect program for the instrument: The Basque cellist, Josetxu Obregón has become one of the most celebrated cellists in the early music world. The programme which he performs twice in Thuringia charts the cello’s journey from continuo to solo instrument, starting with the Italians in the 17th Century up to Bach’s famous suites for solo cello.
