6 Suites for Solo Cello (2012)

Bach

Rocco Filippini

The most remarkable, unexpected, and surprising of the works that came to light in Köthen, where Bach worked from December 1717 to April 1723, are those for violin and cello that Johann Sebastian conceived without the support of any accompaniment, entrusted to either a figured bass or to a cymbal playing in alternating ‘concertante’ manner. 
The two collections – each comprising six compositions arranged to an overall scheme presumably with the view to a printed edition – differ both in content and form, but are in some ways complementary. The first collection to be compiled was probably the one with the works for unaccompanied violin, as would be attested by Baßo | accompagnato. | Libro Primo. | da | Joh: Seb: Bach. | ao. 1720. The work (which has come down to us in six other copies made by different hands, one by Anna Magdalena Bach) includes three sonatas and three suites (BWV 1001-1006). The alternating succession of sonatas and suites (the latter made up of a series of dances, in one case preceded by a prelude) should not however be seen as a succession of six entirely autonomous and independent musical entities (even if Bach speaks of Sei Solo, typical of the editorial custom of the age), but rather as the presentation of three couples of compositions of which the second term or member of the couple is the continuation or corollary of the first; in other words, what we have is integral sonatas, a suite of dances as it were, following a tradition that was by no means rare for the music of the time.

Rocco Filippini

Son of Felice Filippini (painter, writer and broadcaster) and of the pianist Dafne Salati, Rocco Filippini began his musical training at an early age. Of decisive importance was his meeting with Pierre Fournier who became his teacher along with Professor Franz Walter of the Geneva Conservatory. It was from the Geneva Conservatory that Rocco Filippini received his diploma at the age of 17, being awarded the Premier Prix de Virtuosité, an accolade not given for the previous 36 years. He continued to perfect his playing with his teachers, who came to include the violinist Corrado Romano. At the age of 23 he won the Geneva International Music Competition and embarked on his performing career.

With a wide musical repertory, from Baroque to contemporary works, Rocco Filippini has played in the main concert halls of Europe, North and South America, Australia and Japan, and at numerous well-known festivals. In 1968 with Bruno Canino and Cesare Ferraresi he founded the Trio di Milano, which was subsequently joined by the violinistMariana Sîrbu. He was a founder member In 1992 of the Quartetto Accardo. He has performed in numerous concerts at the La Scala theatre in Milan, where he has played in recitals with cello and piano, performed the György Ligeti concerto with the Scala Philarmonic Orchestra, and taken part in many chamber music concerts, often in association with Maurizio Pollini, with whom he has performed concert programmes for several jears in Rome, London, Tokyo and New York, and at the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro and Salzburg festivals. At the Salzburg Festival in 2002 he premièred Fabio Vacchi’s Tre Veglie, with Anna Caterina Antonacci, accompanied by theOrchestre de Paris conducted by Ivan Fischer.
