Artist's description:

Warm, red, powerful, elegant and detailed Synaesthetic (Seeing sound) painting of Prelude - Suite No.1 in G major by J.S. Bach . I am a Cellist and relate to this work emotively and practically by being able to perform my painting! I experience energised, motion filled music with an even, peaceful yet energetic aspect. When listening I get a sense of "other voices" in that Bach is a genius in creating a 'sound' of multiplicity on a melodic instrument. You feel more notes than you actually hear until the final 3 note chord at the end of the piece!

~ Bach took great advantage of the Cello when he composed what is now one of the most popular and recognisable solo cello works. The Prelude commences on an open G string, open D string and a B above the open A string, allowing the cello to display its natural resonance. A smooth, natural, uplifting, positive ( red) clear sound.
