Sebastian Klinger is among today’s major young talents. His abilities as a cellist are unlimited and his musical expressivity is of the highest level.” Mariss Jansons, Principle Conductor of the BR Symphony Orchestra, is full of praise for Sebastian Klinger. This is one reason why the young musician – born in 1977 in Munich – was appointed solo cellist of the major ensemble in 2004 at only 27 years of age. And in fact, Sebastian Klinger is among the best and most versatile German cellists of his generation. He has now made his first recording for OehmsClassics: the 6 Suites for Violoncello solo by Johann Sebastian Bach. This cycle, written between 1717 and 1723 in Cöthen, is not only among the crowning works of music literature, it is simply the yardstick for every cellist. Sebastian Klingner – who is very aware of historical performance practice, but takes an undogmatic approach to it – has succeeded in giving this work his own special imprint.
