Yo-Yo Ma, cello
The Complete Bach Suites
On September 30, Yo-Yo Ma will play all six of Bach's suites for solo cello, music that has been his constant companion through nearly six decades' playing the cello. Mr. Ma has said that when "Bach's music touches us, it reconnects us to our common humanity." Indeed, writing in the New Yorker in December, Alex Ross described Mr. Ma's performance of the suites at the Hollywood Bowl as "The loveliest experience of my listening year...it was as if music had stilled the world."
