J.S. Bach wrote six cello suites, and Emanuel Gruber will perform the odd-numbered ones here. Everyone should know the first, with its equal balance of joy and longing. The third is equally exuberant, full of bounding dances and tumbling lines. In the fifth, Bach gets a little experimental, having the cellist tune the top A string down to a G. The changed resonance matches the suite’s darker mood. —Dan Ruccia
