Beguiling Bach

Mischa Maisky plays Bach Cello Suite No.1 in G

This is music to get lost in. With a performance from Maisky that is as lovely to watch as it is to listen to.

I first heard this piece of music at a performance by a Taiwanese dance troupe, called Cloud Gate. Nearly 30 minutes of Tai Chi like dance, set to this music.
