Great Movies for Cellists - J.R. Humphries
24 January 2014 | by teknotexanSee all my reviews

6 Movies, each based on a separate unaccompanied cello suite by JS Bach and played by Yo Yo Ma himself.

Cellists will learn and hear about each suite, what these mean to Ma, and how these songs inspire a garden designer, virtual engineer, choreographer, Kabuki actor, and two ice dancers.

The 5th suite is fictional thought still entertaining.

Music teachers, Bach aficionados, classical music lovers, ice dancers, Kabuki theatre lovers, 3D engineers, and modern dancers will all enjoy at least one of these films.

Cellists will surely enjoy every single one, for you will learn about how Ma approaches the suites, how they make him feel, and what they can possibly mean for you.

I use these films in my studio and classes, to bring to life the suites.

Since every proper cellist on Earth learns at least one suite during their lifetime, it would be sound to view these short 1 hr long films to help you dig a little deeper into your own personal journey through the Suites for Unaccompanied Cello.
