The performance is a pre-release concert for Sophie Webber's B2C: Bach Cello Suites to Choir. "I will be performing both recorded Suites (No.1 in G Major and No.3 in C Major) with the choristers of St. Paul's Cathedral, San Diego under the direction of Martin Green," says Webber. "These Bach cello and choir arrangements have already gained national and international interest, including potential concert engagements in Germany, England, and Chicago. The San Diego concert will be the global premiere of this music, as well as an opportunity to purchase the album ahead of the January 2020 release date."
The album was recorded in Chicago in September 2019 with multi-Grammy-winning audio engineer Chris Willis, "Since releasing my debut album, Escape: Bach's Six Suites for Solo Cello in early 2018, it has been my dream to create this segue album. I have always loved singing and am a strong advocate for connecting with one's musical instrument like a voice...so the pairing of solo cello with the human voice seemed like the most natural combination and a wonderful way to bring Bach and classical music to both those who already love it, and to those who may not normally find it particularly accessible, but are looking for a way in."
