Tuesday Tunes: Prelude Bach Cello Suite in G Major

The film series, Inspired by Bach, features the beautiful interpretation of Bach's Cello Suites performed by world class cellist Yo Yo Ma. The series comprises six short films, each showcasing one of the cello suites and focusing an a different artistic element. This clip is from The Music Garden (the cello suite in G Major), a documentary about creating a music garden in Toronto.

This topic caught me immediate attention because I love Yo Yo Ma almost as much as I love Bach. :D

Angela: Me, too! I was so happy to see him perform in Denver many years ago. It was the night of my life. He played the Dvorak cello concerto with the Denver Symphony.

Craig: I was inspired by Yo Yo to take cello lessons...and I did! It was very difficult to learn; you have to have a good ear. The guitar is much easier.
