Horizon Concert Series presents cellist Matt Haimovitz in ‘Bach Listening Room’

Cellist Matt Haimovitz

The Horizons Concert Series, which features a variety of musical artists throughout the year, presents acclaimed cellist Matt Haimovitz in a program entitled “Bach Listening Room” at 7:30 p.m. April 2 in Ashurst Hall.

Inspired by the architecture of J.S. Bach’s solo cello suites, the program presents a summation of the vernaculars the composer absorbed from France, Italy, Spain and beyond. For his Horizons performance, Haimovitz will play selections from Bach’s first three suites alongside new music by Philip Glass, Vijay Iyer, Du Yun and Isang Yun.

Haimovitz has been celebrated internationally since making his debut in 1984 at the age of 13 as a soloist with Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic. A widely traveled recitalist, concerto soloist and recording artist, he has concentrated on solo cello recitals that combine classical and contemporary music in recent years.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $12.50 for seniors and NAU employees and free for children and NAU students with ID. Tickets can be purchased through the NAU Central Ticket Office or by calling (928) 523-5661.
