BACH: CELLO SUITES: SIX EVOLUTIONS (Sony Classical, 2 CDs, $16.98) – As Yo-Yo Ma writes: “Bach’s Cello Suites have been my constant musical companions. For almost six decades, they have given me sustenance, comfort and joy during times of stress, celebration and loss.” He entitles the recording Six Evolutions, and is the third time he has recorded the work, after recordings in 1983 and 1998 (which was accompanied by six films of collaborations he made in connection with the recording, called Inspired by Bach).

NOTE: Yo-Yo Ma is embarking on a worldwide tour playing the Cello Suites in “familiar and unlikely places.”

On Thursday, November 29, at National Cathedral, Yo-Yo Ma will perform the complete Cello Suites, produced by Washington Performing Arts.
