Rei Tsujimoto Cello Concert : J.S.Bach Complete Cello Suites

 Great opportunity to have a concert of Complete Cello Suites by Bach is given to me from a proposal by Akiyoshidai International Art Village.
 Bach's all Cello suites concert is one of my dream I had had since before. I am very happy to finally be able to challenge.
 I am already looking forward to share the great music Bach left behind for us with you.
