One of the cello's greatest ever advocates, Yo-Yo Ma has had a long and detailed musical relationship with Bach. So it makes perfect sense that this relationship should evolve over time, as the title of this new collection suggests. Indeed, those familiar with Ma's relationship with the Bach's cello suites in particular will find such a wealth of interest here - indispensable for devotees to performer and composer alike.
