DJ Sessions: The Legacy Of The Cello

When Johann Sebastian Bach was born, the cello had only been around for a few decades. In 1717, Bach composed his first cello suite, one of six that would go on to be remembered as one of the most well-known solo cello pieces of all time.

In this Here & Now DJ Session, host Jeremy Hobson explores the legacy of the cello with WQXR DJ Terrance McKnight (@mcknight3000), including modern works from Philip Glass and Bright Sheng.
