Edgar Meyer, double bass
J.S. BACH Suite No. 1 in G major, BMV 1007
MEYER Work in Progress for unaccompanied double bass
“The most remarkable virtuoso in the relatively un-chronicled history of his instrument,” (The New Yorker), Edgar Meyer returns to Bravo! Vail with the fascinating opportunity to hear a Work In Progress of his own composition, paired with his soulful, revelatory transcription of Bach’s beloved first suite for solo cello, performed with wondrous resonance on the double bass.
ABOUT: Edgar Meyer (double bass), a MacArthur Award winner, straddles the classical and bluegrass worlds. The Goat Rodeo Sessions, teaming him with Yo-Yo Ma, Chris Thile, and Stuart Duncan, won a GRAMMY Award. With Ma and Mark O’Connor he recorded Appalachia Waltz and the GRAMMY-winning Appalachian Journey. For Bravo! Vail’s 30th Anniversary in 2017, he was commissioned by the festival to compose a work for Joshua Bell, which the violinist premiered with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields.
This series includes Edgar Meyer (June 29), Two Pianos Four Hands featuring Anne-Marie McDermott and Jean-Efflam Bavouzet (July 13), New York Philharmonic String Quartet (July 20) and Han & Finckel In Concert (August 4).
