Hear Dane perform as he prepares for “The Walk to Fisterra” in May, 2014 when he will walk nearly 600 miles through Spain on the Camino de Santiago, carrying his cello and performing Bach’s Six Suites for Solo Cello in ancient churches along the way.
 
Alaskan cellist, Dane Johansen appears frequently on the world’s leading stages including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center in New York City, the Kennedy Center, BBC Proms in London, and Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. He has performed with leading artists including James Levine, Pinchas Zukerman, and Mitsuko Uchida. His critically acclaimed performances have been described as “Ravishing… Brave and virtuosic” and “played with staggering aplomb” by the New York Times and New York Magazine. Dane is on faculty at the Juilliard School and has taught at many of the world’s leading conservatories including the Royal Academy in Lon-don. He enjoyed the unique opportunity to apprentice with Bernard Greenhouse, the most distinguished pupil of the great Catalan cellist, Pau Casals, throughout the last five years of Greenhouse’s life.

“Bach’s Suites for Solo Cello represent the beginning and end of my relationship with music. They were among the first pieces I played as a child and the rest of my life will be spent working toward their mastery. Generations of cellists have con-sidered mastery of the Suites as a pinnacle of artistic achievement and a rite of passage. A life spent in pursuit of such a singular goal is like a pilgrimage; it is endless and requires extreme effort, daily commitment, and absolute resolve. I have decided to combine my musical pilgrimage with a physical one. In 2014 I will walk nearly 600 miles on the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route beginning in France and crossing Spain to the Atlantic Ocean. I will carry my cello, performing and recording Bach’s Suites in ancient churches along the way. Walking with me, a team of brilliant filmmakers and a three-time Grammy Award winning music producer will create a visually stunning documentary exploring pilgrimage and music as timeless connections to the past, present, and future; featuring the Camino de Santiago and my first recording of Bach’s Suites for Solo Cello.”
