Bach and Britten for Solo Cello: Between Inspiration and Innovation  

Bartholomew LaFollette, cello

Cellist Bartholomew LaFollette presents a unique programme featuring two of Bach’s Cello Suites alongside Britten's ground-breaking Suite no. 1. The programme illuminates the highly experimental nature of the solo Suites by Bach and the way they inspired and paved the way for 20th-century cello solo works that followed, especially Britten's masterpiece.

One of the great features of Clare Hall is the daily opportunity to mix with students and Fellows from all over the world and with a wide range of interests and experience. To stimulate this further, we host a series of Fellow-Student Dinners every academic year to bring together all parts of the College community in discussion and debate. We do hope you will attend these events and find them both stimulating and enjoyable. There will be no charge for the dinners, the dress code is smart/casual, and places will be allocated on a 'first come first served' basis.

The Fellow-Student Dinners are usually held in the Richard Eden Suite, Gillian Beer House at 7.00 for 7.30 pm. Also, it has become practice for the GSB to provide drinks from 6.00 to 7.00 pm, so that those who weren’t able to sign up, can still talk to students and Fellows, before dinner.

The next student - Fellow dinner and reception will be on 4 May 2018.
