Yo-Yo Ma, J. S. Bach - The Cello Suites (Inspired By Bach) mp3 album

Ma yo-yo the cello suites. Though they were long misunderstood as mere technical hurdles, Bach's six suites for unaccompanied cello are among those rare works of music that offer inexhaustible rewards for performer and listener alike. This cd brings together 2 greats, Yo-Yo Ma and Bach. It truly does not get any better than that. The best way to enjoy this album is to cut the lights off, close your eyes, increase the bass, and feel the music belt out it's power. Bach was a genius, and Yo-Yo Ma is your amazing translator on this tour into the mind that defined Baroque music. A great addition to a classical collection, and a must have for Cello lovers.

The six Cello Suites, BWV 1007-1012, are suites for unaccompanied cello by Johann Sebastian Bach. They are some of the most frequently performed and recognizable solo compositions ever written for cello. Bach most likely composed them during the period 1717–23, when he served as Kapellmeister in Köthen. The title given on the cover of the Anna Magdalena Bach manuscript was Suites à Violoncello Solo senza Basso (Suites for cello solo without bass).

Track DVD-1 is a non-skippable introduction track with on-screen information. Tracks DVD-4 to DVD-6 have no dashes in the track title, whereas the other tracks do have a dash in front of the word "Cello".

Yo-Yo Ma's second recording of Bach's Cello Suites, released in 1997, came about after he heard a quote by Albert Schweitzer describing Bach as a pictorial composer. That led Ma to ask six directors and several other artists from different disciplines to collaborate with him on a series of short films - part documentary, part performance - each one based on one of the suites. The resulting mini-series, titled Inspired by Bach, was shown on television in Canada, the . Europe, and at various film festivals
