I don’t know how I possibly went so long into my life without ever listening to a lot of Yo-Yo Ma, because to be honest with you, I have been listening to his recordings NONSTOP while I have been writing in the last two weeks. I mean it – if I am writing creatively, I am listening to Yo-Yo Ma. PERFECT writing music.
It was actually on an episode of The West Wing that I first heard this song, the song being played in the White House was an integral part to a really emotional episode, and what can I say? It stuck with me.
This is the best video I could find on YouTube, but it can also be found on the album ‘The Cello Suites – Inspired by Bach’ by Mr. Ma.
I highly encourage you to listen to this often, and AS LOUD AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN:
