Cellist Jay Campbell describes himself as “dedicated to introducing audiences to the music of our time.”
He champions music by modern composers like Gyorgy Ligeti and John Zorn. He’s also a new member of the JACK Quartet -- which performed music by John Luther Adams at Crested Butte Music Festival this summer.
Campbell opted to play something a little more traditional during his recent session in the CPR Performance Studio: a movement from Johann Sebastian Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1.
It’s a delicate take on a well-known piece. Watch how Campbell lets the music breathe in a way that helps the listener savor each moment.
