Bachs Cellosuites – Ramon Lormans

Bach’s Cello Suites 2 & 4

Ramon Lormans – marimba

Surely everyone is familiar with Bach’s Concertos for Marimba and String Orchestra? Or, that lovely marimba cantus firmus in his cantata? Exactly: there were no marimbas in Bach’s era. But imagine if he’d had one within reach … if only. Fortunately, there’s a marimba in the Weeshuis van de Hits. You’ve got to admit: these cello sonatas sound like they were written for the marimba.
