Don’t miss this extraordinary evening devoted to Yo Yo Ma’s journey performing Bach’s complete cello suites a two-year project that will bring these works to a limited number of locations on six continents. It is a journey motivated not only by the music’s significance in his life it is among the very first he ever played but also by Bach’s ability to speak universally. Yo-Yo Ma believes that at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the strain it can create, audiences old and new will find shared meaning in this music. He has said that when “Bach’s music touches us, it reconnects us to our common humanity.” The New Yorker described his performance of the suites as "The loveliest experience of my listening year it was as if music had stilled the world.”
