"Soweto Cello Riffs" by Bongani Ndodana-Breen released on Benedict Kloeckner's new album!



Cellist Benedict Kloeckner released a recording of "Soweto Cello Riffs" by Bongani Ndodana-Breen on his new album published on the Brilliant Classics label!


In this three-disc set he tackles the sacred summit of the solo cello repertoire, rightly pointing out that the lack of original manuscripts for the Six Suites leaves them especially open to individual interpretation. Yet he takes a further step in making this recording his own, interpolating between each of the suites miniature compositions for solo cello that he commissioned from composers on six different continents under the motto “Sounds of Light”, thereby placing Bach’s Western European masterworks in dialogue with music from across the globe in our own time.
