Yo-Yo Ma Performs Bach

Aug 1, 2018

Yo-Yo Ma’s Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre debut is the first stop in a two-year journey that will bring Bach's complete solo cello suites 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.”
