Barnes & Noble
Yo-Yo Ma's second recording of the Bach cello suites is no run-of-the-mill remake. Intriguingly, the virtuoso teamed up with several other artists of different stripes, resulting in a six-part film series -- collected in this box set -- that adds an imaginative visual element to each of Bach's scores. Garden designer Julie Moir Messervy explores themes of nature in the First Suite; in the Second, film director Francois Girard looks to the 18th-century architect Piranesi for inspiration; Mark Morris choreographed a new dance for the Third, while film director Atom Egoyan molded a human story out of the Fourth; Kabuki actor Tamasaburo Bando features in the Fifth; and Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean skate an interpretive ice dance to the Sixth. Ma calls the thought-provoking outcome "one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life."
