Marc Coppey is considered to be one of today’s leading cellists. He first came to the notice of Sir Yehudi Menuhin in the 1988 Leipzig Bach competition where he won the two most important prizes – First prize and a special prize for the best Bach performance. He was 18 at the time. Marc appears regularly in Europe, North and South America and Asia and is artistic director of the ‘Musicales de Colmar’ chamber music festival and since 2001 musical director of the Zagrebacki solisti (Zagreb Soloists). He performs on a rare cello by Matteo Goffriller (Venice 1711), the Van Wilgenburg and resides in Paris. The six Cello Suites, BWV 1007-1012 are considered the among the most profound of all classical music works.
