Jean-Guihen Queyras
Marco Borggreve

Cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras has long brought his honest, communicative playing to works from the 17th to the 21st centuries. In his latest album, he’s turned to the deceptively simple Vivaldi cello sonatas, tapping into their haunting expressivity while keeping the dance alive, and it’s WCRB’s CD of the Week.

Sunday at 9:30pm on WCRB's "Voices," we celebrate the vibrant vocal music of the Italian Baroque, from the well-known to the obscure, the pyrotechnic to the sentimental.
