Yo-Yo Ma played all six of the Bach Suites at the Proms last year. It was a mind-blowing feat. I recorded most of the concert and have watched it so many times since. I have become totally enthralled by Yo-Yo’s performance. I adore Suites 5 and 6. I love them all, but the last two have an almost surreal beauty and complexity. I have drawn Yo-Yo performing part of number 5, which is imbued with sadness, even despair . . . The Sarabande, so apparently short and simple - its notes take up less than half a page(!) - bestrides life’s vast chasms, gazes, unflinchingly into those depths and across incomprehensible distances. This music speaks so eloquently of what moves us most and that, which is impossible to put into words, yet, on some such strange level, leaves us with the sense of a greater knowledge and understanding.
