You never know what you’ve got until it’s gone. So goes the idiom describing our lack of appreciation for people and things until we lose them. And what about music? What about our experiences? Over a year into a pandemic, and I’m certainly missing live shows. It’s not that I truly enjoyed sitting on some wooden hard pews, nodding away close to midnight after a very long day, straining to capture a glimpse in the near-complete dark. And I definitely do not miss the spilt beer, the chirping of telephones, and the insistent clamour of talking over the audible tale. But I do miss the moment of music creation, its resonant forms, the player’s connection with the sound of their instrument, and, most importantly, the invisible conversation between the audience and the artist. These thoughts are renewed as I rewatch this video, where the British composer and cellist (and even a friend), Peter Gregson, sits on the stage and plays into the empty theatre, its hollow vacancy the sole witness to feelings expressed. For this piece, “Patina”, the same as the title of his upcoming new album on Deutsche Grammophon, Gregson zooms in on the instrument, stripping away at the layers of sound, until you are left all alone, surrounded by the inaudible absence. And when your mind plays a trick by filling the void, inventing the melodies no longer in music, you too become a performer, playing with Gregson along side by side, on the stage of this moment facing the future of the unknown.

Cellist Peter Gregson’s Bach Recomposed versions of Bach’s unaccompanied cello suites appeared in 2018, featuring rather ambient arrangements of the works for a complement of six cellos, with synthesizer layers added by Gregson. These performances of Gregson’s pieces were recorded in early 2021 and have found commercial success with the present EP. It’s possible that that success is due to the fact that listeners can get an idea of what the set is like in just 14 minutes, but the EP will also be of interest to admirers of Gregson’s original work. Most noticeable is the transfer of the recording venue to Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, which provides an ideal ambiance for Gregson’s music. Many of Gregson’s original arrangements retained a good deal of Bach’s melodic material, but here, he has selected some of the more minimal items from his original group, heightening the meditative quality imparted by the Capitol studio. As before, the music is accessible to anyone, from aficionados of pop electronics to those interested in the application of experimental electronic techniques to the classical repertory, and the music is worth the time for anyone. – James Manheim
