Comments:Annette van der Zee said:

"For the first time ever, world-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma has recorded on a baroque cello and with period orchestra, capturing the glory of Bach and Boccherini for a new audience. Together with the acclaimed Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra Yo-Yo Ma explores some of Bach's most beautiful melodies with arrangements created specially for him by the orchestra's founder, renowned baroque conductor/composer Ton Koopman."
