After a summer at the Hollywood Bowl populated by several large orchestras, massive choirs, multiple fireworks displays and at least one marching band, tonight it all comes down to one man, one cello and six pieces of music by Johann Sebastian Bach. Yo-Yo Ma is probably the most celebrated cellist in the world. The French-born Chinese-American musician is the founder of the Silk Road Ensemble and has long been a restless explorer of multiple genres, from classical and chamber music to jazz, pop, bluegrass and tango. Ma is famous enough to have portrayed himself on The Simpsons, The West Wing and Sesame Street, and this evening he ambitiously wrings out the expressive dark tones from all six of Bach's suites for solo cello.
