Alon Sariel makes his PENTATONE debut with Plucked Bach, a program exploring Bach's cello suites performed on different mandolins, lutes, baroque guitar and oud, concluding with Sariel's own Bach-inspired Mandolin Partita. Bach's suites are often considered to be "the cellist's Bible", but the transferability of his music between instruments - a practice to which the composer himself also contributed frequently - seems to justify this fresh approach. Sariel aims to realize the timeless and universal character of Bach's music in a multifarious sound world of plucked instruments, through a program that employs an interplay of light and dark, embodied by the first and second suites respectively. Another objective has been to bring out the youthful elan of this music, composed years before Bach's Passions. Altogether, this album presents Bach's music in a new, enticing light. Alon Sariel is one of the most versatile performers of his generation, whose guiding principle is a changing perspective; giving new life to existing material, as well as creating completely new works.
