outside listening: yo-yo ma + bach suite no. 1

Posted on Posted in outside listening

On September 7 2015, Yo-Yo Ma delivered a performance of all 6 Bach Suites to an audience of 5,000 at the BBC Proms–no breaks, no intermission, nobody else on the program. You can hear the entire performance here, see it here, here, here, here & here, and read about it here.

As if performing 2+ hours of music weren’t enough of a feat of focus and stamina, he offered up this encore at the end. Awesome.
