Rinat Ibragimov: Bach Cello Suite No. 3, 5. Bourrée
Bach may have written suites for cello, but they sound just as fantastic on the bass. In fact, this third suite is often used as solo material for classical bassists.
Here’s the London Symphony Orchestra’s principal bassist Rinat Ibragimov performing the fifth movement of Bach’s Cello Suite No. 3. His mastery of the instrument is obvious as he plays the piece with incredible technique and expression.
If you enjoy this movement, be sure to check out the rest. Ibragimov recorded the whole third suite to encourage student bass players to explore Baroque playing and Bach’s music.
