Jobine Siekman cello (Mills Williams Junior Fellow)

RCM composer new works (world premiere)
JS Bach Cello Suite no 6 in D major BWV1012

Mills Williams Junior Fellow Jobine Siekman explores JS Bach’s Cello Suite no 6 in D major and RCM compositions specially written for a very rare five-stringed baroque instrument.

For this performance Jobine will be playing a piccolo cello known as the ‘Amaryllis Fleming’, made in c1600 by Girolamo Amati, kindly on loan from Florian Leonhard Fine Violins. The cello was acquired by its namesake at auction in the 1960s.

An alumna of the RCM and devoted to chamber music, Fleming was the first modern cellist to play Bach’s sixth cello suite as it was originally intended. What better place to hold this performance than the beautiful Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall.
