Cello at The Barn: Westben Digital Concert
Brian Manker, solo Cello
In the spirit of Casals and Rostropovich, the Montreal Symphony Orchestra’s principal cellist Brian Manker presents a soulful search for solace using only his cello. Exploring themes of both exile and oasis, Brian shares the music of Bach, Britten and Albinoni while reflecting on stories ranging from the fall of the Berlin Wall to The Cellist of Sarajevo. There is even The Song of the Birds by the Westben willow.
