Yo-Yo Ma cello

One of the greatest cellists in the world plays Bach's timeless suites for solo cello.

Bach's cello suites are arguably the greatest works ever written for cello and Yo Yo Ma is among the most highly acclaimed interpreters.

Johann Sebastian Bach wrote his six cello suites between 1717 and 1723, while he was employed as a court musician at the court in Coethen. They were written for one of the court cellists (probably Carl Friedrich Abel), and show a level of virtuosity unusual for cello writing of the time.
