About the Album

Quirine Viersen returns to the cello suites of Johann Sebastian Bach on the new la- bel BarcaNova Records. She decided she wants to share with you the development she has gone through after deep inner work. Just as the cello suites were a new journey for Bach, they signify now the same for her. “How you are as a person, will reflect in the way you play the music. My story has changed and together with my journey also the way I play. More than ever before I have a story to tell. “

It was in 2010, just after the birth of her eldest daughter that Viersen recorded Bach’s cello suites for the first time on the label Globe – a beautiful and precious blueprint of her life at that time. “Those recordings are very much connected to the beginning of my new life. Your own life renews through the new life you gave. “

But after the birth of her twin daughters two years later, Viersen found herself in desperation about her life as a professional musician. She was less visible on stage because of motherhood and wondered why she wanted to play cello anyway. The music of Bach proved to be her anchor during this challenging period in her life. “Bach gave me, time and again, life energy. Through his purity he brought me back to my own purity and closer to the answer on my questions. “

So again, she immersed herself in Bach’s cello suites, fascinated by the process that composing must have been for Bach himself. Never had he chosen this form for his musical expression. Due to the enormous development in length and size of the structure, Viersen suspects that they have been an experiment for Bach him- self, possibly even study material. “The further you get into the suites, the larger the intervals and bigger the technical challenges. It demonstrates that Bach was becoming more and more aware of the enormous possibilities. Therefore I think I know that they have been a new quest for Bach, a new journey, a journey of which I have the honour to make it over and over again. Music is never the same, always in motion and therefore there is always a new story to tell. “
