Description

Yo-Yo Ma releases the 180g 3LP collection, Six Evolutions - Bach: Cello Suites, his third and final recording of these beloved works. "Bach's Cello Suites have been my constant musical companions," Ma says of the music. "For almost six decades, they have given me sustenance, comfort, and joy during times of stress, celebration, and loss. What power does this music possess that even today, after three hundred years, it continues to help us navigate through troubled times?" Ma is more convinced than ever of the suites' ability to create shared meaning that extends far beyond the here and now. The suites' collective vision – at once divergent and coherent, empathic and objective – reminds us of all that connects us despite an increasingly discordant public conversation.

Bach and his Cello Suites entered Yo-Yo Ma's life when he was four, when he learned the first measure of the Prélude to Suite No. 1 under his father's instruction, and these works have been a through line in his life. His Grammy Award-winning first complete recording of the suites was made in his late twenties. His second, Inspired by Bach, was released in his early forties and recorded alongside a multi-genre, collaborative exploration of the works. Both previous recordings of the Cello Suites, also on Sony Classical, became landmarks in the history of classical discography, as well as milestones in Ma's musical life. Six Evolutions begins a new chapter in the cellist's 58-year relationship with this music.

The release of Six Evolutions also signals the beginning of a two-year, six-continent journey in which Yo-Yo Ma will devote himself to Bach's music, playing all six Cello Suites in single sittings in familiar and unlikely locations. Six Evolutions will not only offer an essential encapsulation of what this music means now to one of our most celebrated artists. It is also an invitation to think differently about the role of culture in society.
