Yo-Yo Ma performs Bach’s six suites for solo cello in one sitting at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus. On this musical pilgrimage Yo-Yo Ma unfolds a musical confession, in which neither patterns nor technical perfection are the centre of attention, but rhythm, tension and inner pulse. It is a journey motivated not only by his six-decade relationship with the music, but also by Bach’s ability to speak to our common humanity at a time when our civic conversation is often focused on division.
