COFFEE BREAK | Yo-Yo Ma's New Bach Video Is The Inspiration We Needed Today

By Michael Vincent on January 15, 2019

Released yesterday, Yo-Yo Ma’s new music video featuring a performance of Bach’s “Prélude” from Cello Suite No. 1 merges Ma’s performance with footage contributed by fans across the world. The video clips where responses to the prompt, “Show the world how you express yourself and what brings your community together.” The video included a clip from Canadia Daniel Mosionier.

Besides being stunningly beautiful, the video also marks the start of the next chapter in Ma’s Bach Project, which brings his performance of Bach’s suites for solo cello to 36 places around the world.

As part of the Bach Project, Ma surprised onlookers in Montreal this past December with a free concert at Place des Arts métro station.

You can see the original video on the performance here:

Yo-Yo Ma’s Bach Project will continue through 2019 with newly announced dates across three continents, including Mumbai, San Antonio, Chicago, Vienna, Tanglewood, Sydney, Melbourne, and Christchurch.

All performances will be accompanied by Days of Action, a series of events ranging from town hall discussions with local leaders to large-scale nonprofit showcases and art projects to collaborative performances which emphasize local talent.
