 Yo=Yo and Bach! February 16, 2014 By Rebecca L. (Buffalo Grove, IL) See All My Reviews "This is a wonderful performance. Yo-Yo Ma is always musical, thoughtful and inventive, and so he is in the Bach Cello Suites. The Cello Suites are a masterpiece and Ma brings out the music in these wonderful pieces while astounding the listener with his technical command." Report Abuse
