Yo-Yo Ma - Six Evolutions: Bach Cello Suites makes 89.5WFIT: Mozart's Attic playlist

The six Bach Suites are mainstays of the literature for unaccompanied cello. Yo-Yo Ma recorded them as a young aspiring artist in his twenties, again in his forties, and now -- for what he says is the final time -- as a mature interpreter who is arguably the pre-emminent cellist of our time. We'll listen to what Ma has to say about Bach, and then we'll take a look at some of the other projects that he has delved into of late -- projects that have not been without controversy.

Mozart's Attic is a classical music program featuring music from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. Some of it is not frequently heard on air; other pieces are concert favorites from the symphonic repertoire, sometimes in rare or historic performances. There's plenty of vinyl, and sometimes even a bit of shellac.
