This is not the first Mr. Haimovitz has performed Bach’s masterful cello suites in an unusual public setting – as he’s done so at restaurants, night clubs, and other non-traditional venues throughout the US. The sound and sights of Bach’s famed “Prelude” amongst the gathered protesters, signs, and blankets is a provocative testimony to our freedom of expression.
