Cellist Juliana Soltis is somewhat of a rebel.

In her music she uses ‘Historical Ornamentation,’ improvising around classics written for the cello by composers like Johann Bach. She believes the notes that Bach wrote are not static instructions, but living works of art.

Juliana joins Idaho Matters to demonstrate exactly what this sounds like and talk about what inspired her to want to play.

As Senior Producer of our live daily talk show Idaho Matters, I’m able to indulge my love of storytelling and share all kinds of information (I was probably a Town Crier in a past life!). My career has allowed me to learn something new everyday and to share that knowledge with all my friends on the radio.
