Yo-Yo Ma's got your Bach / The Hindu

Bookmark and Share

Yo-Yo Ma brings his phenomenal global project featuring the composer's cello suites to India along with spoken word, music recitals and theatre. The celebrated international cellist, is in Mumbai this week for yet another stop over of The Bach Project, a concert series in which he performs Johann Sebastian Bach's unaccompanied cello suites in a single sitting, in what will ultimately be 36 locations around the world. It is a journey that began, rather auspiciously in August last year, at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, Colorado, where nearly 9,000 people gathered to share the musical experience. The solos seemed to coalesce into a stunning musical narrative (performed as a marathon, without intermission) and Ma has spoken of how the concert reflects a shared humanity and the communion between nature and humankind.
